In the case where you're using a separate password database (in my case, keepass) with many entries, keeping large collections o connections organised can be a challenge.
Keeping connections by folder is a useful way to help with this.
Adding a way to make a credential entry point to another credential entry (a link) can improve that in two ways:
- Since password database and connection databases have different hierary alltogether, it allows one to create proxy credentials in the "connections" folder that makes sense
- In RoyalTS, there is no true credential inheritance: when you apply "inheritance" to a folder, you replace all sub-entreis with the "top" one. This makes changing credentials somewhat of a challenge if you have more than one set for a given connection folder. Using proxies would make that process way easier.
