Changing name of connection

We've install the SharePoint connector on multiple server farms.  We've then added connections to each of the farms.  The problem is that when the connection is created it displays the name of the connection as my login.  Is there any way to change the connection name so that I can tell which connection refers to which server.  I've looked at editing the connection but I can't see where I can edit the connection.

Thanks

Re: Changing name of connection

Hi @mfriedenberg ,

 

I have made a test on my side and find we couldn't find a way to update the SharePoint connection names in microsoft flow currently.

I afraid that the function to update the the SharePoint connection names is not supported in microsoft flow currently, If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow

please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Re: Changing name of connection

I agree that it would be nice if we could rename connections.  But currently its not possible. This has been suggested in the PowerApps Forum as a requested new feature.  You can vote for it here:

I'm not aware of any way to rename individual connections.

Thanks for the reply.  It makes it really hard to manage the connections if they all look the same.
