Creating Connections

  2. Enter a name for your connection, which will be used to refer to this connection when creating a Job. If you have multiple connections for the same source or destination, choose a name that describes the purpose of this particular connection.
  3. Enter authentication details and other connection properties. Refer to the online documentation, which provides more details for each connector.
  4. Click Test Connection to make sure that the connection configuration is correct.
  5. Once the connection has been configured correctly, click Save Changes to save the connection configuration.
