Managing Acquia Journey connections

Acquia Journey enables you to create connections, which define the base level of connectivity your project has with external systems. An adaptor uses a connection to do a particular operation, and a single connection may have many adaptors, such as:

  • Databases - SELECT, INSERT, or UPDATE
  • Message queue - LISTEN, READ, and WRITE
  • Social media
  • REST API

Create a connection

To create a connection in a project, complete the following actions:

  1. Go to the Admin page, and then click Projects in the left menu.
  2. Find your project in the project list, and then click its project name.
  3. In the project's detail view, click Connections.
  4. Click Add New Connection to display the Add Connection
    dialog.
  5. In the Type list, select your desired connection type from following options:
  6. In the Name field, enter a descriptive name for the connection.
  7. Click Save.

Configure your new connection based on the type of connection you selected.

Testing a connection

To test a connection, click the connection name in the project's connection detail view, and then click Test Connection.

Test connection

If the connection is successful, Acquia Journey will display a Connection successful message.
