I have an idea:

Shared Connections for Data Sources

Currently connection details (host, port, username, password, url, etc) must be reentered for each datasource. Ideally we would be able to configure a connection once and then reference the connection in multiple data sources.

While not exactly as requested, there is now an option to duplicate a data source. When creating new data sources, the connection details will already be in the duplicated data source.

This should help when creating multiple data sources that need the same configuration info.

    To configure once the connection and then just refer to it is very useful. When changing connection elements (for example host) one must change it manually for each data source.
    There should be a more elegant, faster way.
