SQL connection for multiple ado sql sensors?




I am using ADO SQL sensors for monitoring different states and results from my database. Every sensor has its own connection string defined explicitly in sensor settings, which is the same for all sensors.

For example, if I need to change DB password or IP I have to change connection string in every ADO SQL sensor.

Is there any way to use same sql connection for multiple ado sql sensors?


ado change connection connection-string
