DataGrip always asks for password for my local PostsgreSQL connection Follow
Whenever I try to open any table in my local Postgres connection, DataGrip asks for password, saying:
"The specified database user/password combination is rejected:
 The server requested passord-based authentication but no password was provbided"
And I always have to re-enter the password, even when "Remember" checkbox is checked. Also that password was specified while creating connection.
Meanwhile at my another computer I do not have such issue.
What can be the problem? Is it a bug in DataGrip or something wrong with my local Postgres configuration?
P.S. Now DataGrip started to ask for password only one time after I relaunch it. After that I can freely open tables.

@Alexander Egorov Could you e-mail IDE logs to email@example.com and provide a screenshot of your "Appearance & Behavior > System Settings > Passwords" settings?
Sent you the files.
@ Alexander Egorov
Thank you for logs.
It's the known issue https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-163275 .
As a temporary workaround you need to enable "Save passwords => In KeePass".
Unfortunately, KeePass works terrible in my case. Anytime I launch DataGrip and open any table for the first time - this operation takes a couple of minutes, all I see is a lagging spinner with the word "Processing". Also, when I change the password, this also takes a long time, sometimes making DataGrip irresponsive (but CPU load is low though). Seems all operations "through" KeePass take a long time.
Weirdly enough I just disabled remember password at Data Sources and Drivers , and it did not ask every time for pass.
When I tried enabling remember pass back again, it kept asking for password again...
Try it out.
unselecting remember me works for me as well on datagrip. This is wierd.
I have found a solution ...
Go to Preferences -> System Settings -> Passwords ... and from there choose KeyPass for saving passwords
This will save passwords in a file so it should not have any problems in the future, the only bad thing is that since pass is saved in a file it can be less secure (but in my case I dont really care since all my servers are local)
You're right, the workaround is mentined in https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360000115370/comments/360000104584
Had the same problem with 2018.1 installation in MacOs. It has been working find until recently it started asking for password even though I checked "Remember Password" and "Native Keychain" in Appearance & Behavior -> System Settings -> Password.
Like @Flaviorajta said, I unchecked "Remember Password" and filled the password and counter-intuitively, the problem is gone.
To uncheck "Remember Password" saves the day. Thanks very much.
But maybe its a missunderstanding. "Remember Password" means "Remember to ask the password again and again" :-)
Same issue, Arch Linux KDE.
@ Evgeniy Tsvigun
Coud you try to store your password is KeePass?
I think this should be the default behaviour of the save password feature.
