Creating connection profiles (Sybase Central)

To simplify the connection process in Sybase Central, create a connection profile to save the connection parameters for each database.



Context and remarks


Storing user IDs, encrypted or unencrypted passwords, and database keys in a connection profile is not recommended.

Connection profiles are specific to Sybase Central. If you are building an ODBC application, you can use ODBC data sources to achieve functionality similar to connection profiles. See ODBC data sources.

 Create a new connection profile (Sybase Central)
  1. Click Connections » Connection Profiles.

  2. Click New.

  3. In the Name field, type a name for the new profile.

  4. Click New Connection Profile and choose the appropriate plug-in from the list. The plug-in is the product, such as SQL Anywhere 12 or UltraLite 12.

    To base your new connection profile on an existing profile, click Copy Connection Profile and choose the profile from the Existing Connection Profiles list.

  5. To allow other users to access the profile, click Share This Connection Profile With Other Users. This setting is useful on multi-user platforms such as Unix.

  6. Click OK.

  7. In the Edit Connection Profile window, enter the required values, and then click Save to close the window.


The connection profile is created and you can use it to connect to your database.
