Release Notes – 2020.10.2

Sometimes, you can’t connect directly to your database. Maybe for security your database is running on a server that doesn’t listen directly to external requests. When that’s the case, you can now connect to your database through an SSH tunnel. When adding a new connection, use the new “Advanced Options” sub-menu to enter your SSH credentials. Then modelDBA will connect to your database as if you were logged on to the SSH host.
