SQL Connection Failed - Keyword Not Supported


SecureAuth IdP Version affected: All



This documentation assists in fixing the error "connection failed: keyword not supported: 'x'", where x can be any character or value.


The connection string for the SQL in the Data tab is being delimited by an undeclared keyword


Remove any extra semi-colons that are delimiting the values, characters, or keywords.


  1. This is the error window that pops up when trying to "Test Connection".

  2. Semi-colons are utilized in the SQL connection string to delimit the values being inputted.  In this case, the client's password to their SQL service account began with a semi-colon.
  3. To resolve, simply remove the extra semi-colon by changing the password to not contain that delimiting character!
