In order to perform data loading operations, you need to create a connection first. You can create a connection either in the package editor when creating or editing an integration or backup package or on the Connections page.
The Connections page lists all the available connections - their names and types - and allows to create, edit, clone, or delete them. To open the Connections page, click Connections in the menu on the left side of the page.
|•||To create a new connection, on the Connections page click the New button. Then click the corresponding connection type in the opened box. |
To quickly find the corresponding type you can enter a part of the type name in the search box. After this only the types, having the entered string in their names, will be displayed. To filter connections by a category, you can click the corresponding connection category from the list to the left of connection types:
|o||All - displays all the available connection types. |
|o||CRM - displays supported cloud CRMs. |
|o||Accounting - displays supported cloud accounting applications.|
|o||Email Marketing - displays supported cloud email marketing applications.|
|o||E-commerce - displays supported cloud e-commerce applications.|
|o||Database displays supported relational databases. |
|o||Storage displays supported cloud file storage services. |
In the opened New Connection dialog box, specify a connection Name that will be used to identify the connection. After this, specify the connection parameters, that depend on the type of the connection you create.
|•||To delete a connection, on the Connections page select the check box in the first column of its row and then click the button.|
|•||To open a connection for editing, on the Connections page select the check box in the first column of its row and then click the button.|

You can also open the Connection Details page for a connection to view the detailed information about the connection by clicking its name or perform the above actions with the connection.
The Connection Details page displays the connection parameters on the left side of the page and the lists of the backup packages and integration packages that use this connection on the right side of the page. You can delete, edit, or clone connection on this page by clicking Actions, and then clicking the corresponding command from the menu.
