To add a new Connection or view an existing one, click the Connections tab on the navigation pane on the left side of the page.

  • Click on the (+) button in the lower, right-hand corner.

  • Scroll down to confirm the Environments for "DEV" and "PROD" are enabled.

  • Click the corresponding boxes, as necessary.

  • Save the Connection.
