The Manage Connections tool allows you to manage and activate connection to your Bathymetry Information system (BIS) file geodatabases and enterprise workspaces. The tool also allows you to assign local aliases to BIS geodatabase connections, rename local aliases, and remove BIS geodatabase connections from your BIS Local Alias list.
If you work with multiple BIS geodatabase connections it may be helpful to rename them for easy identification. When renaming a connection, only the alias displayed in the BIS Local Alias list in the Manage Connections dialog box will be changed. The database name and the name of the connection file will not be changed.
