To be able to manage your database in DBeaver, you need to create a connection to this database – see Creating Connections. A connection includes a driver and a number of configuration parameters including the location of the database and credentials to access it. You need to create a separate connection to every database you want to manage. Every database type requires its own set of connection parameters.
- Edit connections, see Editing Connections
- Rename and delete connections - via corresponding context menu items, see Database Navigator
- Connect to and disconnect from databases using connections, see Connect to Database and Disconnect from Database.
Database connections might have the following states:
- not connected
- has network settings specified (such as SSH tunnel, etc.)
- connection error
