DBeaver offers a feature for setting up authentication profiles. This DBeaver Profile authentication type streamlines database management by allowing the creation of unique profiles for each authentication method. It effectively reduces the complexity and increases the efficiency of managing database connections.


1) From the Authentication dropdown menu, select the DBeaver profile method. 2) If you already have a profile set up, select it from the Profile dropdown. 3) If you don't have a profile yet, click the Manage profiles button to start creating a new one. 4) In the window that opens, click the Create button and name your profile as per your preference.


5) Select the type of authentication from the available options and fill out the required fields.

Tip: If you check the Save credentials locally option, you will not be asked to input your credentials every time you connect. 6) After filling in all the necessary fields, click OK to save your profile settings. 7) Back in the main connection settings window, click on the Test Connection button to verify if your settings are correct. 8) If everything is configured correctly, DBeaver should now be able to connect to your database using the DBeaver profile authentication method.
