I've (1) reviewed https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-net/8.0/html/P_MySql_Data_MySqlClient_MySqlConnect... and (2) attempted to add the "ApplicationName" option to the connection string (which yields a "Option not supported. Parameter name: applicationname" error message) and it doesn't appear that Connector/NET supports the "ApplicationName" option.

I also looked through all the options specified within https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-net/8.0/html/P_MySql_Data_MySqlClient_MySqlConnect... and couldn't find any other option that would allow me to help clarify within the MySQL database which query is associated to which connection.  Unfortunately I couldn't find any other option that fulfilled this need.  As a result we will likely get more granular with the User IDs we use to assist with that identification.

Nevertheless, I'm curious if the "ApplicationName" option is a feature that will available in the future?  If so, when will it be available?

How to repeat:
Simply add the "ApplicationName" option with any value to the Connector/NET connection string.
