Auto Connect

Auto connect is a feature that lets you skip the Connect form where you enter ZooKeeper server address and throws you directly into the Editor UI. This is useful when you only have a single (or preferred) ZooKeeper cluster.

To enable this feature, first add the ZooKeeper cluster you want to use as a Preset Connection to ZooNavigator.

Then simply set the AUTO_CONNECT_CONNECTION_ID environment variable to the id of that preset connection.

For example, if you added your ZooKeeper cluster using CONNECTION_MYZK_CONN environment variable, then you would set AUTO_CONNECT_CONNECTION_ID to MYZK.

That’s it. When you open up ZooNavigator, it will automatically connect to your ZooKeeper cluster.
