About this task

To use variables of an existing context group centrally stored in the Repository to set up a connection, follow the steps below:


  1. When 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 Reuse an existing repository context and click Next.
  3. Select a context group from the list and click Next.
  4. For each variable, select the corresponding field of the connection details, and then click Next to view and edit the context variables, or click Finish to show the connection setup result directly.
    In this example, click Next.
  5. Edit the contexts and/or context variables if needed. If you make any changes, your centralized context group will be updated automatically.
    For more information on handling contexts and variables, see Using contexts and variables.
  6. Click Finish to validate context reuse 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.
