Sharing a data connection

My teammate created a data connection.


I would like to use his connection.


Is that possible?  (I don't see his data connection as an option when I edit my script).

You can create duplicate in QMC and assign as you are the owner of that data connection
Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

There are probably 2 ways to do it (AFAIK)
1. You can add yourself as Content Admin in QMC to see all the data connections created by other users
2. Create a security rule attached to that data connections
Resource filter as DataConnection_*
Actions as Read or update or create based on what you need...
((resource.type ="folder" or resource.type="ODBC" or resource.type="OLEDB" or user.name="YOURUSERNAME")) something like this -- I did not test this but my guess is it should work

But point #1 will work for sure if you are having Content Admin role in QMC
