I'm trying to filter the Data Source Name (usually server name for SQL Server connections), so that this difference doesn't show up as a difference when comparing packages between servers.
I've set the DataSource under Connection2 to Show but don't compare, but it still shows as different - under Connections, conn_name, ConnectionProperties, DataSource. It looks like the only way I can filter this is to filter out all ConnectionProperties, which is not ideal.
I don't know if that's because I'm not setting the correct filter item, or there's no appropriatiate filter item other than connection properties, or if it's a bug.
I'd post screen shots if the forum supported it, but it doesn't directly, and I don't have somewhere I can host pictures.
Anyway, that leads to the suggestion. An alternate view for the filtering pane - a simple list, sortable by the property name or the path to the property, and perhaps filterable in turn using a search phrase.
That way I could search for data source and find all properties with data or source in them, and thus see which ones I could/should filter out.
