Executing the authentication statement

The way you execute the SET TEMPORARY OPTION statement that sets the authentication option depends on the programming interface you are using. The signatures listed here are not valid signatures. Examples are provided for setting the authentication option using the following interfaces:

Using special characters in the authentication option

If your company name has quotation marks, apostrophes, or other special characters (for example, Joe's Garage) you need to be careful about how you construct the authentication statement. The entire set of authentication options (Company=...;Application=...;Signature=...) is a SQL string. The rules for strings in SQL dictate that if you include a quotation mark inside the string, it must be doubled to be accepted. For example:

SET TEMPORARY OPTION connection_authentication='Company = Joe''s Garage;
    Application=Joe''s Program;

Line breaks have been added to the syntax example to improve readability. However, the syntax should be executed without line breaks and without spaces between the equal sign and semi-colons.
