Suppose I have many employees who connect to the same set of about 20 or so changing mysql servers using Mysql Workbench. I want to keep the connections, and other configuration info synchronized between all employees. How can I share that info, say using dropbox?

MySQLWorkbench keeps that information in


If you sync that file, it should do the trick. You might want to link it to your Dropbox folder like:

cd  %APPDATA%\Roaming\MySQL\Workbench
mklink /j connections.xml %YOUR_DROPBOX_FOLDER%\connections.xml
