Synatic offers a wide range of 3rd Party connectors as Sources, Destinations and Lookups. To simplify reuse and secure the configuration, Synatic uses Connections.

All sensitive Connection information is encrypted and redacted which means it is never sent back to the front end. There is no way for the User or Synatic to retrieve connection information and it can only be updated.
