following the course Integration With SQL Databases: error password authentication


I am following the steps in order to create a PostgreSQL database connection according to these steps:

However, I get a password authentication, while I am sure the password is exactly the same as the example in the previous step:

What am I doing wrongly here?

I have included the backlog

Thanks in advance

Hi Marc,

There are several pieces of information that define the connection.  From the log, it's not possible to tell exactly which one is incorrect:

  • Host.  Is the PostgreSQL database on the same machine as DSS?  If not, this setting should point at the host for PostgreSQL, and not localhost
  • Database.  Be certain it exists in the db; you can check from within the db
  • Port. 5432 is the default port for PostgreSQL, but you'll want to be certain that's what it's running on 
  • User.  Be certain that you can log in as this user, with the following password, in the db 
  • Password.

Hi @Namit , what step are you at when getting this message?  If you can include a screenshot, that might help.
