Editing Connections

You can edit a Connection from either the Connections page or from the page in the Map where you select your Connections.

Note: Best practice is to create Connections with credentials that limit permissions in the target system, following the principle of least privilege. Using Administrator level credentials in a Connection provides Administrator level access to the target system for TIBCO Scribe® Online users. Depending on the entities supported, a TIBCO Scribe® Online user could alter user accounts in the target system.

Open The Edit Connection Dialog

There are several options for accessing and editing Connections:

Edit The Connection

  1. From the Edit Connections dialog for the selected Connection, you can:
    • Change the Connection name. The name is changed for any Solution that uses this Connection.
    • Change any other Connection information, as described in the Help for that Connector.
  2. Test the Connection against any Agents that use this Connection. See Testing Connections.
  3. Select OK/Saveto save your changes and close the Edit Connections dialog.

Note: The changes you make are reflected the next time any Solution that uses that Connection runs. If a Solution is running while you are making changes, the new Connection parameters do not affect the current execution.

Note: If your Organization has multiple Agents, be sure to test the Connection against all Agents that use this Connection.

Note: If you make changes to the Connection and do not test the Connection, the Connection is tested when you select OK to save your changes. If no changes were made, selecting OK just closes the dialog without testing the Connection.
