Connection Manager

Use the Connection Manager to create and manage all the connections that are available on your system. After you create a connection, it can be used as either a source or target in any DTS on your system. Scribe DTS files move data from a source location to one or more target locations.

An Insight connection contains the login credentials and adapter settings required to connect to a data source. You can use connections to connect an Insight adapter, an ODBC data source, an OLE DB provider, or a Web Service.

You can open the Connection Manager from different locations in the Workbench:

Before you create a DTS file, consider which connections you need and plan your DTS requirements. TIBCO suggests that you create your connections, then select from the defined connections for your source or targets as you build the DTS file.

Usage codes in the Connection Manager indicate the role each connection serves in the DTS.
