Help connecting to a postgresql Database

I am brand new to Talend, and watched a youtube video on how to connect to an Amazon Redshift postgresql database using the metadata on Talend. When I press the "check connection" button, it says the connection was successful. When I go to retrieve the schema, it says the connection failed. When I go back to edit my connection, my database "string of connection" is changed. Any idea what's happening? Thanks

Re: Help connecting to a postgresql Database

Hi jmontgomery,

On which official version did you get that? Is there any error log which is located in <Talend Studio installation path>/workspace/.metadata/.log ?

Best regards

Re: Help connecting to a postgresql Database

xdishi, I am running version 6.0. Here is the error log I am receiving when trying to retrieve the schema(note, when I initially set up the connection to the database, it says the connection is good, it is only after this does the connection not work anymore):
Connection failure, check the database settings or contact your database administrator.

Re: Help connecting to a postgresql Database

Hi,
Does this issue repro on your another studio(5.6.x)? Can you connect to your postgresql DB successfully through client without using Talend tool now?
Best regards
