ij.user property

The ij.user property specifies the login name used to establish the connection.

This property is used in conjunction with the ij.password property to authenticate a connection. If authentication is not active, these properties are ignored.

When you supply a username, you need to be aware of the database schema. When you connect using ij.user, the default database schema applied to all SQL statements is the same as the user ID provided, even if the schema does not exist. Use the SET SCHEMA statement to change the default when the schema does not match the username. Alternately, you can fully qualify the database objects referred to in the SQL statements. If no user is specified, no SET SCHEMA statement has been issued, or SQL statements do not include the schema name, all database objects are assumed to be under the APP schema.
