SQL Application intent (Read only) connection string MSSQL allways on



Would be nice to have a way to add ApplicationIntent=READONLY to the connection string. Maybe in the SQL v2 setting where you can select user application intent. this would modify the connection string to include ApplicationIntent=READONLY E.G. SQL connection string with Application intenet enabled..

ODBC;DSN=mydsn;Description=mydesc;Trusted_Connection=Yes;APP=Microsoft Office 2010;DATABASE=mydb;ApplicationIntent=READONLY;;TABLE=dbo.mytable


Server=tcp:<server>.database.windows.net;Database=<mydatabase>;ApplicationIntent=ReadOnly;User ID=<myLogin>;Password=<myPassword>;Trusted_Connection=False; Encrypt=True;
