    Idea review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this idea. This issue has been raised before (, and after previous discussion it was closed as not under consideration on the grounds that there is already a good option within the Toolkit to avoid resource usage in the circumstances described through a preferences panel option (which was also referred to in the linked case in this request). This said, we accept the argument that a disconnect option could still be argued as a positive step forward for the Toolkit on the grounds of potential for accidental drag and drop deploy on to the wrong connected integration node. Having a disconnect option would allow a user to temporarily "block" deployment to particular nodes not currently being used, but by "disconnecting them". Whilst this item is not a high priority for us, we will move the status to Future Consideration this time around.
