    I, like I feel most people, have multiple .sde databases underneath one instance (Production, Staging, Development, etc.). When I as the GIS Analyst am working in ArcGIS Pro, and I build a database connection to both my Staging and Production database, it doesn't name them based upon the name of the sde geodatabase but rather based upon the instance. I therefore get instance.sde, instance(2).sde, and instance(3).sde. I would like to see ArcGIS Pro recognize the database name and name the connection off of the name and not the instance.
