The Connections tab is where you define the connections to your data sources.
Connections are made using a provider for .NET, OLEDB or ODBC. We recommend for the best experience to use the provider for .NET where it is available.
You create a new connection by pressing the (+) icon at the left hand side.
You need to give your connection a name, and optionally a description.
Then you have to select one of our native connectors, or choose to connect via OLEDB or ODBC.
We recommend you use a native connector where available.
Once you have selected your connection, you are prompted for various values that are needed to make a succesful connection to your data source.
You press the [Test] button to see if the details you have provided are correct.
Once the test passes, you are able to press the [Save] button to save your definition.
You can come back at any time and update any of these settings. You can press the [Test] button to make sure you changes are correct, and then you press [Save] to store your changes.
