Creating a New Connection

When you create a new connection, the connection parameters are stored on your local system, which allows you to reopen the connection at a future time without having to re-enter the connection information.

To create a new connection:

  1. In Serena Explorer, right click the Dimensions CM node and choose New | Connection. The New Dimensions Connection dialog appears. You may also need to enter new connection information when adding Eclipse projects to source control.

  2. Complete the dialog by entering the following:

  3. Click the Finish button, or click Next if you got to this screen from the Share wizard.

If you selected the Connect on Finish option, the connection will be opened with the Dimensions CM server.
