Checking Connection Status

From time to time, you may need to confirm you're connected to your database. Arctype provides a few simple ways to do this.

Checking connection status when adding a new connection

If you're adding a new connection to your workspace, you may wish to check that you entered all the connect details properly. To do this, select the Test Connection button in the connection modal. If your connection succeeds, you'll see a message appear in the bottom right, informing you that it was successful.
Connection successful.

Checking the status of an existing connection

To check the status of an existing connection, select the Connection status icon in the top right corner. This will open a dropdown, showing the status of your current connections. The green icon indicates that you have a working connection to your data source. A gray icon indicates that you have a data source in your workspace to which you have not connected. A red icon indicates that your connection is not working. Arctype will also display the error associated with a failed connection in the left sidebar.
