Database connection using LDAP?

For a database connection, is there a way to specify Talend uses LDAP for authentication?
There doesn't seem to be an LDAP option for the Teradata database connection in Talend. Using the Teradata specific driver will give better performance than using ODBC/JDBC.

So far, we don't support that. All the DB components use ODBC/JDBC mode not LDAP authentication.

It is possible, you have to add additional parameters:
TMODE=TERA,LOGMECH=LDAP

Hello Talendtester,
thank you for the quick response.
Actually i am not interessed only in Tera Ldap but also mysql, db2, ora to prevent us from using our passwords in connectionsstrings.
I this also supported ?
How do i realize the additional parameters ?
in the Textbox Additional JDBC parameters or somewhere else ?
