Can Add/Remove Connection be locked in Connection Manager

I am looking at deploying Toad to a large group of Data Analysts and Developers. Some should have access to production data and some should not. I am wondering if there is anyway to lock the ability to add or remove connections in Connection Manager. I really like the ability to import groups of connections, but I don’t want many of the users to be able to change this for security reasons.

We don’t have that feature. You would need to create different connections.xml to deploy to your different groups of users

I grasped the concept of different connections.xml files. Thought that was a great tool for deployment. But being able to lock the connections down, would be very useful. Is that something that I can submit a Feature Request for? It would be nice if only a Local System Administrator could add connections as an option. Most of our analysts do not have Administrator rights.
