Save database connection password

Somewhere after the PHPstorm version 8.1 I now have to put in my database password several times a day while working.  It seems that checking the save password checkbox doesn't help. Is there somthing I missed or is this a new feature?

Thanks.

Right-click your connection and select properties.

Make sure 'Save on disk with master password protection' is checked under the password field.

I have tried that and it still asks be for the master password all the time.  The only advantage that I can see is I can open both connections on the same password until the master password times out.

What data base are you using? Is it located on your local system or on a web server? If MySQL and running on a diff machine, did you setup a Host user in MySQL?

I am using Postgres 9.03 located on my test server.  I have been using this setup since PhpStorm version 7.  I didn't start having the problem until version 8.02.  I have the password saved on disk with master password protection and I keep getting promped through the day to put in the master password.  This doen't seem to be a database issue.

Hopefully someone out there is using Postgres that may be able to help. I'm limited to my experience with MySQL I've not had any issues with password not being saved.

Have you deleted the connection and setup a new connection with a different name and see if that works?

I'm all out of suggestions.
