Test Your Connections When You Create Them

You can now test connection settings when you create or update a connection. Previously, you only discovered a connection didn't work when you tried using it and had to return to the connection setup to fix it.

Where: This change applies to Einstein Analytics in Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic. Einstein Analytics is available in Developer Edition and for an extra cost in Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions.

How: When you create or update a connection, click Save & Test. Analytics saves the connection and attempts to connect to the source using the settings that you provided. If the connection fails, Analytics displays possible reasons.Screenshot of remote connection edit dialog with a connection test failed message
