    $conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);
}
catch (PDOException $e) {
    print("Error connecting to SQL Server.");
    die(print_r($e));
}

// SQL Server Extension Sample Code:
$connectionInfo = array("UID" => "rajkishore", "pwd" => "{your_password_here}", "Database" => "TsInfoSQLNewDB", "LoginTimeout" => 30, "Encrypt" => 1, "TrustServerCertificate" => 0);
$serverName = "tcp:tsinfo.database.windows.net,1433";
$conn = sqlsrv_connect($serverName, $connectionInfo);
?>

Finally, click on the Go tab to see the connection string, and it will be like the below

// Go connection Sample Code:

import (
	_ "github.com/microsoft/go-mssqldb"
	"database/sql"

	"fmt"
	"errors"
)

var db *sql.DB
var server = "tsinfo.database.windows.net"
var port = 1433
var user = "rajkishore"
var password = "<your_password>"
var database = "TsInfoSQLNewDB"

func main() {
	// Build connection string
	connString := fmt.Sprintf("server=%s;user id=%s;password=%s;port=%d;database=%s;",
		server, user, password, port, database)
	var err error
	// Create connection pool
	db, err = sql.Open("sqlserver", connString)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal("Error creating connection pool: ", err.Error())
	}
	ctx := context.Background()
	err = db.PingContext(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err.Error())
	}
	fmt.Printf("Connected!")
