Issue

When customizing the way Tableau Server connects to the data source using a connection-configs.xml file as detailed in Configuring Parallel Queries in Tableau Server

Parameters dbname and server are not applied to the connection even if they are defined in the xml file.

For example, using the configuration defined below:
 <connection class='sqlserver' dbname='SalesDB' server='SQLserver10'>
      <limit max='10'>
      </limit>
   </connection>
Only the class parameter will be applied to the connection, while dbname and server will be disregarded.
