On the Database settings page, you can set and verify the database you have connected to. You can also check the credentials, set limits on the Maximum Connection Pool Size, and encrypt the connection.
If you change the database you have connected to, your session is no longer valid and the system signs you out.
Database Settings is available in the Invicti Enterprise On-Premises edition only.
For further information, see Overview of Settings in Invicti Enterprise and Invicti Editions.
