I just tried to create a database connection to a MySQL 5.7 DB.
This is a clean DW 7 Install which I did today. While creating the connection in the wizard (entered hostname, port, DBName and user) I am greeted by an error message "Password is required" or something along these lines. Even if I finish creating the connection (entering "root" which I did not want to use) and want to edit out the password afterwards, DocuWare Administration greets me with "You need to enter a new password".
tl;dr: can not connect to database with empty password.
Is this by design or just something that might have been overlooked?
The account with empty password which I wanted to use has very restricted rights, while the root account is, well, root.Currently I am not able to create an additional user on that SQL Server and setting a password for the other account would break other software.
