Connection parameters in Ecto


I am reading Ecto’s documentation for a project, and I stumbled upon the parameters field in Ecto.Connection:

:parameters - Keyword list of connection parameters 


The description says I need to use a keyword list of connection parameters but:

  1. it does not specify what parameters are available (I could pass a connection parameter called bananas and the code would probably blow. What values does it accept?)
  2. it does not specify the format of said parameters (strings, atoms, booleans, etc)

So, where can I find the information regarding this parameters? Where is it documented?

In your database drivers documentation.

Ecto does not deal with this parameters but passes them transparently to your driver.
