Loss Of Database Connection Information During DRM Metadata Extract And Load (Doc ID 2288082.1)

 Migration extract/load is working as designed. Connection String and Username are not meant to be migrated.
Connection string is an encrypted value and may include host, username, and password information embedded. While this field could be extracted and loaded as encrypted, there's another issue with allowing these fields to be migrated.
Typically, migration pushes from one system to another would "require" that external connections use different configuration settings. If we load in a group of external connections (say from QE to PROD), the customer may accidentally export information to the wrong system. By not loading in connection-string, username, and password, we force the customer to supply valid information for the external connections in the post-migration system.
