To simplify the connection process in Sybase Central, create a connection profile to save the connection parameters for a database.
There are no prerequisites for this task.
Context and remarks
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.
Storing user IDs, encrypted or unencrypted passwords, and database keys in a connection profile is not recommended.
In Sybase Central, click Connections » Connection Profiles.
In the Name field, type a name for the new profile.
Click New connection profile and choose the appropriate plug-in from the dropdown list. The plug-in is the product, such as SQL Anywhere 16 or UltraLite 16.
To base your new connection profile on an existing profile, click Copy connection profile and choose the profile from the Existing connection profiles list.
(Optional) 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.
In the Edit Connection Profile window, enter the required values, and then click Save to close the window.
