I am trying to create InfoPath forms based on data connections rather than directly against a list but I am unable to find out how to create the library for storing the connections.

I found this documentation but it is for SharePoint 2010 but this UI has changed a lot for 2013. Has anyone does this on 2013?

Have you enabled Enterprise Site Features on the web? I have the Data Connection Library app available at the end of my 'Add an App' page (previously known as 'Create List' page).

Enterprise Site Features is and was enabled but the Data Connection Library app does not show for me. There must be something else that it requires – Ryan Erickson Feb 27 '13 at 23:09
I needed to enable the features on existing sites and that added the Data Connection Library. Thanks for the help! – Ryan Erickson Feb 27 '13 at 23:14
