A new feature in Aginity Pro is the ability to import and export your connection templates and share them with other users. A good deal of inefficiency with SQL IDE’s is the time it takes to get connected. No longer. With the connection templates you can save all the relevant detail minus the login credentials and distribute them through an easy import and export feature.
To get started have a DBA or power user establish the connection details once and export the connection as shown in the image below.
You will be presented with a selection list of connections as shown below. Select the connections you want to export and click Export selected
It is important to either check the radio button include sensitive data or
to uncheck it.
This will include the username and password or exclude it from the connection export.
You will be presented with a file menu window to name and pick the folder location for the export file as shown below.
Once you have exported the connections you can send them to Aginity Pro users and have them import them. To do that choose the Import Connections menu item as shown below.
You will be presented with a file selection. Choose the appropriate Aginity connection package.
By default Aginity packages for both Catalog and Connections are prefaced with
.aginitypkg file types.
Once you choose a file select the connections you want to import and choose Import Selected.
