In Looker Studio connections have been shared by default, but now you can use them across Supermetrics products (Excel). Shared connections allow you to authenticate to a data source account once and make that connection accessible (shared) with your team. Team members won’t have to log in again — they’ll be able to use your shared connection to fetch data.
You can keep a private connection private and unshare it with your team. However, it’s good to keep in mind that unsharing a connection will break all queries built with this connection.

Our support team is aware of this change and ready to answer any questions you have. Reach out to them with any questions or concerns — they’ll be happy to help.
