postgres connection without username not possible

I am using Postgres on macOS Big Sur for development.

The database doesn't require any credentials.

When I try to connect without Userid, I get the message: "An error occurred while establishing the connection:

Long Message:

FATAL: no PostgreSQL user name specified in startup packet"

How do I connect to my Database?

(Using the user "postgres" doesn't work either.

Hi Heiko!

Sorry for the late answer. 

If this is still a problem please Please enable Debug DbVisualizer in Tools->Debug Window and the Debug tab and then re-run the operation that causes the issue. Then use Help->Contact Support in DbVisualizer to send the log file to us (make sure that Attach Logs is checked).

Regards Ulf
