The server behaviors panel was removed for Dreamweaver Creative Cloud. This tutorial will tell you how to install this functionality back into Dreamweaver with an extension that Adobe provides via Adobe Add-ons.
NOTE: This tutorial assumes that you have installed Dreamweaver CC software and an Adobe account.
Once you are logged into your Adobe account locate one of the profile menus like the one shown below and click on Add-ons (highlighted).
As a shortcut, select FREE and type in "server" in the search field as highlighted. After you run your search you should see the Server Behavior & Database extension in the results (highlighted).
Clicking the image or extension title text will open the extensions details. Clicking the "Free" button will begin the installation process.
You can check your Adobe Extension Manager CC for the new extension to verify it is installed.
You'll find the panel located in it's usual place in the Window menu and selecting it will display it within Dreamweaver.
Keep in mind that Adobe has deemed this part of Dreamweaver as being deprecated in effort to step away from the database developers side of the software because who knows why. This being said, this extension is no longer supported or tested by Adobe in any form.
They have added back this as an extension I am sure from the blow back by many disgruntled developers that came to depend on it and because many third party software developers run extensions through it.
Currently, WebAssist's newest extension MySQLi Server Behaviors has two great features that depend on the Adobe Server Behavior & Database extension to work. These are: WebAssist Query Builder and WebAssist Data Modeling. These two features require Dreamweaver CS6 or newer regardless if your CS5.5 or older Dreamweaver has Server Behaviors.
