Google Data Studio has connectors to MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc. but these connections will come with default names.

Couldn't find out how to set the names for data sources in Google Data Studio. Is it even possible?

It's not obvious but if you go resource>manage added data sources>edit action on source and then simply click the connection name it's actually a text box and you can rename it there.
