Manage connection profiles

Review all connection profiles

All connection profiles can be reviewed from the connection profiles page. The connection profiles list presents all connection profiles created by any user, which haven't been deleted.

The connection profiles list displays a default set of high-level information for each connection profile, including:

  • The connection profile display name.

  • Usage indicates if the connection profile is in use by one or more active migration jobs, where an active migration job is any migration job that's not in "Completed" status. The number of jobs next to status indicates the total number of jobs (both active and inactive) referencing the connection profile.

  • The database engine which the connection profile is configured for (MySQL or PostgreSQL).

  • The hostname or IP, and port of the source database that the connection profile is representing.

  • When the connection profile was created.

In addition, the user may choose additional columns to display more information. To do this, click on the column selection button at the top-right corner of the connection profiles list. Additional columns available for display include:

  • The username with which Database Migration Service is connecting to the source database.

  • The method of SSL/TLS configuration used (none, server-only, or client-server).

  • When this connection profile was most recently modified.

Perform actions on connection profiles

From the connection profiles list, users can drill into a specific connection profile to view detailed information and manage the connection profile.

Information available in the connection profiles details page includes:

  • List of migration jobs using the connection profile.

  • When the connection profile was created.

  • When the connection profile was last modified.

  • All the details provided during connection profile configuration, such as the hostname/IP and port, username, and SSL/TLS configuration.

Actions can be performed on a single connection profile from the connection profile view, or on multiple connection profiles from the connection profiles list view.

Modify connection profile

Other than the engine type, any part of the connection profile definition can be modified at any time.

Delete connection profile

To delete a connection profile, first delete the migration job(s) that are using the connection profile, and then delete the connection profile.
