Exporting a Connection Profile

Export one or more connection profiles to a text file.

You might want to export connection profiles if you:
  • Plan to create a new workspace or upgrade to a newer version of DTP.
  • Want to reuse existing connection profiles.
  • Share a common set of connection profiles across a workgroup.
  • Want to deploy a set of connection profiles to a backend server environment, whose application can work directly with the exported file. You can copy the file to a server with no need to explicitly import the connection profiles.

Connection profiles are exported as text files, either plain or encrypted.

  1. In Data Source Explorer, click Export Connection Profile button Export.
  2. Select the connection profiles you want to export.
  3. Enter a fully qualified path to create a new file, or click Browse to overwrite an existing file.
  4. (Optional) Deselect Encrypt File Content if the connection profiles do not contain passwords or any other content that poses a security risk.
  5. Click OK.
