What is the best way to copy database connection?

Hi all,

I need to connect a replica of the database which is already connected to Metabase. All credentials will be the same, only the domain/address will be different. Is there any way of duplicating the connection to the database in Metabase, so I don't have to go through the regular process (typing in a password)? Does anybody have an idea if this is possible?

Hi @kuba1016
That's currently only possible with Serialization: https://www.metabase.com/docs/latest/installation-and-operation/serialization

Or you could use the API: https://www.metabase.com/docs/latest/api-documentation
The best way to learn the API, is to just use Metabase while having your browser developer Network-tab open and looking at the request, and what data is being send/received.
