How to setup MSSQL connection fields from function node / outside the node?

Basically I want to access SQL node each fields from dashboard to enter data. Therefore is it possible to access those fields from outside the SQL node ?

eg: accessing name from function node like "".

any help would be really appreciated :slight_smile:

please see the image

It is not possible to dynamically set a connection from dashboard or messages. The connection is a shared config object setup at design time.

However, if you are using node-red-contrib-mssql-plus you can use environment variables for those fields.

Oh okay. I will try with that. Thanks for the reply as well as the solution.


note - environment variables are only evaluated at deploy time - so you have to restart Node-RED to reload any changes.
