Sybase Central connection profiles

When you first connect to a database server or database, you enter a user ID, password, and other connection parameters. This information must be entered again when you make subsequent connections. To save time and simplify the connection process, you can create a connection profile to save the connection parameters for each database.

To use and manage connection profiles, choose Connections » Connection Profiles. This command opens the Connection Profiles window, where you can:

  • connect using a connection profile

  • edit an existing connection profile

  • create a new connection profile

  • set a description for a profile

  • delete or remove profiles

  • import or export a connection profile

  • set a profile to connect automatically when Sybase Central is started


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 Creating ODBC data sources.
