      Description

      Summary

      The sqlsrv extension's sqlsrv_connect() function has a $connectionInfo parameter that allows the user to set a bunch of connection options.

      At present Moodle sets a limited number of these keys and doesn't allow the user to override/extend these to meet their environments. This change adds a new $CFG->dboptions['dboptions'] option that allows the user to alter and override any connection options.

      Example use case

      If the user has multiple ODBC drivers installed and configured in /etc/odbcinst.ini it may be necessary to set the Driver key to ensure that the correct version of the driver is used.
