    • TransactionKey: The transaction key associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:authorizenet:LoginId=MyLoginId;TransactionKey=MyTransactionKey;
  7. In the dialog that appears after you click OK, click connect to test the connection.
