New update in OIC allow us to replace any connection used in an integration with another connection of same Type and Role. Earlier if you want to replace any existing connection of an integration for that you had to delete the existing connection and then configure a new connection in place of that. This action affect the downstream flow and you had to reconfigure most of the thing. It was totally a REWORK.
How this new update can help you ?
One case scenario - suppose you want to change the connection name of a connection that you have used in your integration. You can achieve this using this new feature ' #Replace '. Just replace the older connection with new connection having new name. It will not affect your downstream flow. NO REWORK:)
