Manage Connections
The parameters defined in a Connection allow the App to connect to a source of data like a SQL Database and expose the entities as Data Sources within the Page. Connection parameters can include credentials such as a username, password, path, URL, or location identifier that you can use to make a remote connection to the Data Source. For example, Connection parameters to connect to an SQL Database would include the Server Name, Authentication type, Username, and password.
