A Connection is the configuration, including the login and other parameters, needed to connect to any datastore used by TIBCO Scribe® Online. Every Connection is named to allow you to organize and track your TIBCO Scribe® Online Connections.

The Connections page displays the status of the Connections used by your current Organization. Create Connections while configuring a Solution or from the Connections page. See Adding A Connection.

Note: If you are a member of more than one Organization, select a different Organization from the Organization list to see all Connections for that Organization. See Changing Organizations.

The Connections page displays the following information about each of the configured Connections for this Organization:
