Data Connection Name Duplication

The gallery shouldn't allow to create data connections with already existing names.

For example, in designer it's difficult to choose which data connection we want to work with if they have the same name, please verify the images in attachment.

hi @joanatpsantos thanks for your feedback. I'm curious if this is intended behavior? @JohnPelletier can you weigh in?


@joanatpsantos thanks for your interest and feedback. While I think this would be a nice feature to have, we have many other more urgent priorities right now. Maybe we can ask other users how they deal with this issue...will a naming convention help with this?

@JohnPelletierWe already have a naming convention but if you have 30 or more connections to create you would need to search for each one of them before creating them and in a platform with hundreds of artisans this can take a lot of time. Thanks.
