The Studio 3T 2022.7 release is all about new features in the Connection Tree. Now you can assign an alias to any item in the tree and it will be displayed as the preferred name of that database, collection or view. And you can attach a note to those items too. We’ve also enhanced the visibility of read-only connections with a padlock indicator.
Headline Features in Studio 3T 2022.7
Aliases: These let you set your own display name for a database, collection or view which will appear first in the tree (followed by the actual name) and first in dialogs using those collections or databases. This lets you relabel everything locally so you get the naming that suits you.
Notes: Alongside aliases, we’re introducing notes which you can create on any connection tree item where you can create an alias. Notes show as a notepad icon next to the item and you can see the note by hovering over the item in the connection tree.
Read more about this new feature in the Knowledge Base article: Connection Tree Metadata: Aliases and Notes.
Read-Only Connections: A Read-Only Connection’s Icon now has a padlock icon.
This includes the Connection Tree, Connection Manager and the database “breadcrumb” headings in Export and Import.
Users provide valuable feedback and for the Studio 3T 2022.7 release we would like to thank Mario Skocic for alerting us to an exception in the logs and Dr Ismet Ozalp for noting issues when the Mongo shell lost connections. We’d also like to thank all the users of Studio 3T who have yet again been invaluable in driving Studio 3T’s improvements.
Fixed in Studio 3T 2022.7
- The keyboard shortcut for Refresh Selected Item now refreshes the selected item, instead of behaving like Refresh All.
- Stopped a crash that occurred when copying collections using copy and paste, if after doing copy, you disconnected and reconnected the target database, then pasted.
- The context menu is now available anywhere in the tree area. When there is no item selection, the menu offers Connect, Refresh All, and Disconnect All options.
IntelliShell: We now disable the Refresh View option when there are no refreshable results views.
Table View: On Linux, when there were few columns and there was a change in the table order, columns that were padded to fit space retained their width. They now correctly resize.
Export: Connection colors in the source collection selection are now visible.
Connections: You can now connect to MongoDB when the user lacks permission to run ‘buildinfo’.
Session Restore: Data Masking units will now restore correctly. This includes if they are not saved as a Task or they lack any masked fields.
IntelliShell: On Windows, the search box would reveal a gray field when users deleted content.
Copy: Now stably manages copying collections between servers where the user has limited permissions.
Import: Import tasks for BSON mongodump folders and archives now store and restore BSON options consistently.
SQL Import: When editing an SQL Import Unit, clicking on an unset target collection could trigger a crash.
PostgreSQL: The driver was upgraded to enable support of SCRAM-SHA-256 passwords.
Logs: Null Pointer Exceptions were being logged when UUIDs were converted to strings. The underlying bug was fixed.
