Change Database Connection Name


Am I correct in saying that if I change the name of our main database connection I am going to have issues or will everything (including scripts) change their reference to the new name?

Pretty much everything in Ignition is built around the idea that the name of something is the “key” to uniquely identify it. There are pros and cons to this approach.

In your specific case, yes, changing the name of a database connection will almost certainly cause issues. Projects should update their default database to the new name, but any explicit references to your database in your projects will not be automatically updated. Also, any globally-scoped events (think tag event scripts) will not automatically adjust, either.
