Aside from compliance considerations, is there any way to auto-populate the username and password fields when embedding Teradata Views via the Javascript API.

Using Named Parameters from SQL Server Reporting Services Topic by mr_tim 22 Apr 2011 odbc, .net data provider, parameter, named parameters, ?, @, reporting services, bids, report builder

Named Parameters are a great feature when using Teradata SQL Assistant. All one has to do is put "?my_parm" in the SQL. This can be very helpful in testing a query and can be a great time saver.

Microsoft's report development tools also provide the same feature... using "@my_parm" syntax within the query of a report. This works great with other databases. However, it does't work when using the Teradata .NET Data Provider nor ODBC to Teradata. One has to use an unamed parameter markert, simply "?", in their SQL.
