Error Trying To Connect Postgresql Data Source.


When I try to connect to the postgre database the following error appears:

"Could not connect to data source using an encrypted connection. To access this data source using an unencrypted connection, click OK.


After I click OK, another error message appears:

"Cannot authenticate with the provided credentials. Please try again."


I already checked my username and password. It's all OK.

Does anyone know what can it be?

Hello @hgslu15 ,


First thing I would check is the official documentation: and make sure you are respecting the supported authentication (User and Pass and NOT Windows)postgres RS.png


If these are OK ... next step is to open a support ticket .
