Connection Templates Management


The Purpose

The templates enable administrators to define various reusable connection parameters, subsequently allowing users to create multiple connections based on these templates. This process ensures consistency across the connections created from these templates, as they adhere to the defined parameters within the templates.


You can add, edit, or remove database templates on the Connection Templates page in administration.

Connection Management



To create a new template, follow the steps below:

  1. Click the Add button located on the top toolbar. This will open the template creation form.
  2. Fill out the fields in the form with the appropriate information.
  3. Once all fields are completed, click Create.

Your new template should be successfully created and it will appear at the top of the templates table.

Template Form

Below are the detailed steps to set the template parameters:

  3. To verify the template connection, click the Test button. If SSH is configured, the test will use it to establish the connection.
  4. When users attempt to establish a connection using the template, they will be prompted to enter credentials.
