Creating a Centralized Connection Profile

This procedure describes how to create a centralized connection profile in the Configuration domain of Control-M. Centralized connection profiles are stored in the Server database and are available to all of your Agents in your environment. It saves you time and resources and there is no need to define connection profiles for each Agent.


  1. From the Configuration domain, click and then select Centralized Connection Profiles.

    The Centralized connection profile tab appears.

  2. From the Add connection profile drop-down list, select the required Plug-in.

    The Add connection profile pane appears.

    The drop-down list shows only plug-ins that you have installed.

  3. Do the following:

    1. In the Connection profile name field, create a name for the connection profile.

    2. In the Description field, describe the purpose of the connection profile.

    3. For each field, type the required values.

      For lists of required parameters, see Connection Profile Parameters.

  4. Review the connection profile details, click Test, select an Agent to test the connection profile, and then click Test.

    If the test completed successfully, the connection profile is validated and you can now define an application plug-in Job. If the test failed, review the error message and test it again.

  5. Click Add.

    The centralized connection profile was created successfully.
