SQL Security

🔗 What is SQL Security ?

The SQL Security allows you to restrict access of the survey to a given row of an existing SQL Server table and let you reuse the data from that query for piping purposes anywhere in your survey questions or answers using the data attributes. Each query can be parametrized using entries from the respondent. You can add new variables to build a user interface allowing the respondent to fill them up. These variable can then be used in your query as standard SQL parameters.

If your user interface is composed using only hidden variable ngSurvey will automatically call the query once the survey gets loaded and no user interface will be shown.

Respondent will only be granted access if the query returns a row or if the Access only to SQL entries option is disabled.

Once the respondent has finished the survey and submitted his answers ngSurvey will save the retrieved SQL data along the respondent answers.
