Connection Tab

Use the Connection tab in the data source configuration wizard to specify the connection credentials required to access the data store used for the data source configuration. You can specify new connection credentials or use a previously validated data store connection. Once a connection is validated, it is saved. See Managing Data Store Connections for information on managing saved validated connections.

You must be logged in as an administrator to see the Connection tab of the data source configuration wizard.

To specify new connection credentials:

  1. Select Input New Credentials on the left side of the Connection tab.

  2. Specify a name for the connection in the Connection Name box.

  3. The connection details required to connect to a data store vary by data store. Use the boxes on the tab to specify the URL and other connection details and, if applicable, authentication credentials (User Name and Password boxes) required to connect to the data store. Any connection requirements for a specific data store are described in the connector documentation for that data store. See the Data Connector Reference.

  4. If the Do As User box is available and you want to enable user delegation, optionally specify the custom user attribute set up for user delegation. See Applying User Delegation to a Connection.

  5. Click Validate to validate the connection. If the connection is valid, you can continue the data source configuration process.

  6. Click Next to proceed to the Tables/Indices Tab in the data source configuration wizard. Click Back to return to the General Tab.

To use a previously-validated connection:

  1. Select Use Validated Credentials on the left side of the Connection tab.

  2. From the drop-down list, select the data store connection definition you want to use.

  3. Click Next to proceed to the Tables/Indices Tab in the data source configuration wizard. Click Back to return to the General Tab.
