I checked and I did it, but the option doesn't appear. i'm using spotfire cloud and drivers work correctly, In SpotFire Server Can I activate and disactivate this option? because when I changed to SpotFire Cloud for SpotFire Server (my server), connection options hid database.

To use the TIBCO Spotfire Connector for Microsoft SQL Server (that connects directly from the Analyst or Web Player to the database) there's no need for a driver, it uses an included driver. The connector must be deployed however.
Microsoft SQL Server can also be accessed through Information Services (where the data is fetched via the Spotfire Server). Drivers aren't actually needed in this case either since the Spotfire Server bundles two such drivers (one from DataDirect and one from Microsoft). The corresponding Data Source Templates must be enabled in the Spotfire Server configuration however.
