What are the challenges you face when working across database platforms? Take the survey

Feature suggestion: parse a connection string if you paste it into the "server" input

I often use SQL Compare / SQL Data Compare to work with databases in the cloud, Docker images, etc - where I'll already have an ADO.NET connection string from a dashboard or config file.

It would be *awesome* if pasting that connection string into this box would parse it, extract the host, authentication method, credentials, database name, etc: and automatically populate the relevant fields in the database connection settings dialog:

Is this something the folks at Red Gate might consider adding in a future release?
