Recent Sources no longer shows Redshift connections

Version: 2.98.683.0 64-bit (October 2021)


Prior to this latest release, all of my Redshift connections were saved in Recent Sources. That is no longer the case.  "Amazon Redshift" appears in the list, but it is not the saved connection. When I select that option, I get an error message. Is this a potential bug or expected behavior? Is there somewhere I should go in Desktop to refresh the sources so this works?

This is still an issue in the 2.99.621.0 version.

Previous versions of desktop work fine. I am able to see all of my Redshift connections listed in Recent Connections. This is just an issue with the October update.

@JoyH , Check for any open issues or report new one on latest release


This month Redshift connector was updated with SQL option, that might be causing that
