You can add a task to a database connection to use it as a reminder to modify the connection or to flag a problem that needs to be solved later, for example. You can also add a task to a catalog, a table or a column in the connection.

Before you begin

A database connection is created in the Profiling perspective.

Procedure

  1. Expand Metadata > DB connections.
  2. Right-click the connection to which you want to add a task, and then select Add task... from the contextual menu.
    The Properties dialog box opens showing the metadata of the selected connection.
    Overview of metadata of the selected connection.
  3. In the Description field, enter a short description for the task you want to attach to the selected connection.
  4. On the Priority list, select the priority level and then click OK to close the dialog box.
    The created task is added to the Tasks list.

Results

The created task is added to the Tasks list.

What to do next

You can follow the same steps in the above procedure to add a task to a catalog, a table or a column in the connection. For further information, see Adding a task to a column in a database connection.
