Connections

Connections in Sequentum Enterprise are used to connect to data distribution targets, such as AWS S3 or Azure Storage. Connections are created in the Sequentum Desktop Editor, and can be uploaded to the Agent Control Center. When a connection is uploaded to the Agent Control Center, it's assigned to the organization of the user uploading the connection, and it's automatically deployed to all Sequentum servers assigned to that organization.

Connections can be accessed from the Organizations menu by users with the Admin role.
