Edit capabilities of database connection settings

Technote (troubleshooting)


Are database connection settings editable after creation?

Resolving the problem

Connection settings for a database can not be edited. If a database connection is imported into a project (using Import to Folder...) from the DB Servers view, the settings can be viewed by changing to the Navigator view. In the project which the connection was imported into, look for the file named connectionName.conxmi (where connectionName is the name of the database connection specified in the Connection name field). Open the file to view the connection information.
