Export and Import Saved Connections

On this page

  • Tasks

To quickly connect to a shared deployment, export and share your saved connections. Colleagues can import your saved connections, or you can use them yourself in your other workspaces. You can manage saved connections in the Compass UI or with the Compass CLI.

Important
