Configuring Connections

Configuring Connections

Click the Connections settings on the Sources node to define source connection information. For relational sources, choose a configured database connection in the Value column for each relational source instance. By default, the Workflow Manager displays the source type for relational sources.
For flat file and XML sources, choose one of the following source connection types in the Type column for each source instance:
  • FTP.
    To read data from a flat file or XML source using FTP, you must specify an FTP connection when you configure source options. You must define the FTP connection in the Workflow Manager prior to configuring the session.
  • None.
    Choose None to read from a local flat file or XML file.
