[Feature Request] sharing session data between pcs

eos's profile image eos posted 8 years ago in Feature discussion Permalink
I have a desktop,laptop and work PC. I use heidi sql on each (but not at the same time). When I add a new DB session login to one, I then have to manually add it to the others.

It would be fantastic if heidisql could save its session login data in say a file on copy.com or dropbox or similar, so that you always have all the sessions. Obviously this is not for everyone (e.g. in high security environments), but would save me time and effort moving between machines.

I have donated, if that helps. HeidiSQL is the best.

That feature is already present in the latest build. When you first fire up HeidiSQL you are presented with the 'Session manager' window. Click on the 'More' button in the bottom right corner and select 'Export settings file...'.

On your other PCs, click on the 'Import settings file...' and load the settings saved from the initial HeidiSQL instance.

This is useful, but not the feature I am looking for. I dont want to have to export to a file, then import from a file, every day. If I forget to export before I leave work, when I get home, I cant import my changes. I was meaning something which is always in sync - e.g. changing the place where HSQL keeps its settings to a cloud drive, such that any changes I make are always written to this cloud drive immediately.

You could use the portable version, which stores its settings in a txt file.

Is there a way to tell the portable version to look for another file/path ? I'd like to store the configuration file in my Dropbox, as I do with winSCP, but I can't find any relevant information about this.
