Daryl Joubert: "I am evaluating your PostgreSQL Maestro product for purchase by my company and thus far I am very impressed! I really like the easy, intuitive and productive user interface and feature set. I am also evaluating a number of other products for PostgreSQL database design and maintenence but thus far SQLMaestro stands head and shoulders above the rest".
Simon Pills: "Someone finally invented an intuitively used and easily customized PostgreSQL database administration tool! Keep up the good work. I will be in touch. I am able to do this horrendous work because your software enabled me to create a new database with all necessary objects in several minutes! I am sure that I have found what I really need".

Connect to a database

To manage an existing database with PostgreSQL Maestro, you have to create the according database profile first. A profile stores database connection settings, and some additional options to customize the way the software works with the database. After the creation database profiles appear as nodes in the Explorer tree on the left (profile properties can be later changed with Database Profile Editor).

 

When the profile is created you can connect to the database. To do so, select the database in the Explorer tree, or either select the Database | Connect to Database main menu item or use the Connect to Database item of the popup menu. You can also double click the database node in the explorer tree. If connection succeeds, the database node expands displaying the tree of database objects (tables, views, procedures, etc). The database becomes ready for your activities.
