SQL Database Connector not accepting hastags in password

I’m 99% sure it’s a bug.

I have filled in my connection string and when I click “test the connection” i get
“Your connection string does not fit the standard string. It should look like mysql://username:[email protected]:PORT/db_name.”

When I remove the # (hashtag) in my password I get
“Connection issue Connection attempt failed: Login failed for user ‘REMOVED’.”

Where you have a hash symbol, replace it with the url-encoded string:
%23

so if your password is pass#word, you’d have
mysql://username:pass%[email protected]
