    Default How to use repository-defined connections?

    Hi, everyone!

    I am using Kettle 4.3 with a file repository. I want to use a database connection stored in the repository in transformations stored in the same repository, but I cannot find a way to do it. When I define a new connection in the repository it is saved there, but it is not visible when I create or edit transforms.
    I googled it for long time, but cannot find any solution. Documentation says that you can define database connection in the repository and then use it in your transforms, but it does not say how to do it.
    It sounds like I am missing something simple and obvious.
    I would appreciate any hint

    Thank you,

    Sharing a database connection allows you to reuse it.
