The following table describes the options that you can include in the Connection String using the Advanced Connection Editor dialog box:




Authentication Type

Not used for Zoho Inventory. Do not change this parameter value.

Connection Lifetime

When a connection is returned to the pool, its creation time is compared with the current time, and the connection is destroyed if that time span (in seconds) exceeds the value specified by Connection Lifetime. The default value is 0 (connection always returns to pool).

Connection Timeout

The length of time (in seconds) to wait for a connection to the server before terminating the attempt and generating an error. The default value is 60.

Default Command Timeout

The time in seconds to wait while trying to execute a command before terminating the attempt and generating an error. The default value is 60.

Failover Retries

The number of retries to perform a command if it fails because of the exception, which indicates that the reason of a failure may be temporary. The default value is 7.

Local SQL Engine

Determines whether to enable local SQL processing (enabled by default). Local SQL processing allows performing complex SELECT statements that cannot be directly compiled to Zoho Inventory API calls. In this case the data from the mentioned cloud objects is queried to the local cache, and then the query is performed against the cache.

If local SQL processing is disabled, only simple SELECT statements that can be directly translated into Zoho Inventory API calls can be used. More complex SELECT statements will fail.

Max Pool Size

The maximum number of connections allowed in the pool. Setting the Max Pool Size value in the connection string can affect performance. The default value is 100.

Min Pool Size

The minimum number of connections allowed in the pool. The default value is 0.


It stores OAuth Refresh Token.

Persist Security Info

Indicates if security-sensitive information, such as the password, is not returned as part of the connection if the connection is open or has ever been in an open state.


If true, by default, the connection is drawn from the appropriate pool or is created and added to the appropriate pool.

The host name or IP address of proxy server.

Proxy Password
