Additional information

Role

The ```SYSADMIN``` role should be granted to the specified user. Make sure you use not a public role because it doesn’t have enough permissions for the load process.

Note: this field cannot be empty.

Use static IP

Select Yes for Use static IP option if you allow Improvado to connect your database by the static IPs mentioned on the Destination connection page.

Select No if you have permitted access to your database from any IP. In this case, Improvado will connect your database using dynamic IPs not listed on the Destination connection page.
