Few management options are available for file connections including editing or deleting the connection, adding a task to it, or importing and exporting the connection.

You can edit the connection to a specific file and change the connection metadata and the connection information.

Prerequisite(s): A file connection is created in the Profiling perspective of the studio. For further information, see Connecting to a file.

To edit an existing file connection, do the following:

  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, expand Metadata > Filedelimited Connection.

  2. Double-click the file connection you want to open.

    The connection editor for the selected connection is displayed.

  3. Modify the connection metadata as required and click Next.

  4. Go through the steps in the wizard and modify the file connection settings as required.

  5. Click Finish to validate the modifications.

Other management procedures for file connection are the same as those for databases.
