I've been using the new functionality in SQLMS for supplying connection string properties when connecting to Analysis Services. Unfortunately it looks like once I have used a connection string property it keeps on being applied for new connections, even when the connection string property text box is empty

Hello Christopher. Thanks for the feedback. We triaged this issue and at this time do not plan to address this in a future version of SQL Server. -Walter A Jokiel, Program Manager, SQL Server (

Hello Christopher,

What version of SSMS are you seeing this issue occur in? (Help -> About...)

I'm unable to reproduce the issue with additional parameters being used but not showing up in the "Additional Connection Parameters" page.

I am able to verify that we no longer seem to remember the Connection Params from previous connections but I wanted to verify that you are indeed seeing a full resurgence of the bug as was originally reported.

This bug was fixed, but has now reappeared in SQL Server Management Studio 2012 (and I think in earlier versions)!

This issue has been fixed in the upcoming Katmai SP2. Now the Additional Connection Parameters from previous connection are not only remembered but also displayed in the textbox.
