  • Saved Connections - Sort, Export, Import abilities

    The ability to save a connection to remote servers in IIS Manager is nice, but the connections are displayed in the order that they are entered.  They cannot be sorted, making it hard to manage an Enterprise level infrastructure.

    The IIS manager needs the ability to sort the saved connections.  Additionally, since the credentials are NOT saved, it would be nice if there were import and export features to save the list.  This would allow this list to be backed up and/or shared among team members.

    Attempting to move an Enterprise to Server core is difficult when the management tools are limited.

    The desktop version of IIS Manager is on the way to phase out, as IIS team is working on the new product,

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis-administration/ 

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis-administration/management-portal/connecting 

    Besides, if you do manage a server in a firm, it would be more common to customize PowerShell scripts and even your own web portal to automate tasks and simplify management.
