When you create more than one context for the same database or file connection, the menu Switch context will be accessible from the connection. This menu enables you to select the context on which you want to execute the current analysis.

Prerequisite(s):Multiple contexts has been defined for a connection in the Profiling perspective of the studio. For further information, see Creating multiple contexts for the same connection.

To switch between different contexts of the same database or file connection, do the following:

  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, expand Metadata > DB connections or Metadata > FileDelimited connections.

  2. Right-click the connection exported as a context and select from the contextual menu Switch context. The [Choose context] dialog box is displayed.

  3. Select from the list the context you want to set for the current connection, and then click OK to close the dialog box.

    A confirmation message is displayed prompting you to refresh the connection editor.

  4. Click OK to close the message.

    The context has been changed accordingly for the current selection.

For detailed information on centralizing the contexts and variables to be used in data integration Jobs or data quality analyses, see Managing Metadata for data integration.
