SqlConnection.ClientConnectionId / sys.dm_exec_connections RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to resolve my .NET SqlConnection::ClientConnectionId value to sys.dm_exec_connections in SQL but failing to find a matching record.  Does ClientConnectionId not represent a record in SQL Server sys.dm_exec_connections?

    No, as we can see the ClientConnectionId would be generated regardless of whether the attempt succeeded or failed. However, the record in sys.dm_exec_connections view only represents these established connections. If you want to check the ClientConnectionId information, you could check the extended event log:
