ODBC. Query connector- Provide username password in connection string

Is there a way we can specify username and password along with entire connection string while connecting to a database in mquery?


If yes, I could not find the valid syntax anywhere on the internet not even in the official documentation.

Hey buddy. Thanks for the reply. Appreciate it. 

But these links are not related to poewr bi. I know how it works in qlikview and how we can include username and password in connection string. 

Maybe, I was unclear the first time I asked the question but I want to know the syntax that we add in power BI mQuery Advanced editor that can include username and password.


I did come across a similar post on the forum but I did not find a solution.
