How do you see more connections under "Connection References"? I have to recreate each time.

When using some actions like "Run a flow built with Power Automate Desktop", I need to reuse connections so that there are not large amounts of the same connection under Data>Connections to maintain.  Sometimes the connection I need is listed under "Connection references" or "Other connection references" (highlighted in yellow below), but usually they are not so I am forced to click on the "New connection reference" option which results in a new connection being created (undesirable).


How can you see more connections under "Connection References" so that you don't have to create a new connection for each action?  I need to be able to reuse existing connections so that I don't have to maintain so many of the same connection (change account passwords used in the connection when password resets happen, etc.)

@kierian Are connection references limited to solutions?  Example: a connection reference used in one solution can't be used (or isn't visible) from other solutions?
