Alias does not seem to be working for Toad 11.6

Hi All

I am using Toad for Oracle 11.6, recently I came across a feature where I can specify the alias for a connection and that will be displayed in the connection bar. However this is not working as expected.

Please see below 3 screenshots, could you help with why this is not working as expected, or is my understanding simply incorrect?

Aliases setup in main window:

Aliases not shown on connection bar:

Display option set correctly for alias:


Yes, it was broken for direct connections. This was fixed a few betas ago. If you make TNSNames file and use the TNS tab to connect in Toad, it will work in 11.6.
