How to set up different Data connections

At our organisation we already use a SQL server database with different scheme's, which is accessed by our SAS environment.

Within our SQL database we have already created different users like (Finance_01, Finance_02).

Within SAS we have grouped users X01, X02, X03 in a group which has the right to use user Finance_01.
