Exporting connection details as context variables

About this task

To export connection details as context variables in a new context group in the Repository, follow the steps below:


  1. Upon creating or editing a metadata connection in the wizard, click Export as context.
  2. In the Create / Reuse a context group wizard that opens, select Create a new repository context and click Next.
  3. Type in a name for the context group to be created, and add any general information such as a description if required.
    The name of the Metadata entry is proposed by the wizard as the context group name, and the information you provide in the Description field will appear as a tooltip when you move your mouse over the context group in the Repository.
  4. Click Next to create and view the context group, or click Finish to complete context creation and return to the connection wizard directly.
    In this example, click Next.
  5. Check the context group generation result.
    To edit the context variables, go to the Contexts node of the Repository, right-click the newly created context group, and select Edit context group to open the Create / Edit a context group wizard after the connection wizard is closed.
    To edit the default context, or add new contexts, click the [+] button at the upper right corner of the wizard.
    To add a new context variable, click the [+] button at the bottom of the wizard.
    For more information on handling contexts and variables, see Using contexts and variables.
  6. Click Finish to complete context creation and return to the connection wizard.
    The relevant connection details fields in the wizard are set with the context variables.
    To unset the connection details, click the Revert Context button.
