I'm struggling with the JDBC connection at the moment. I can use the database connection GUI easily enough, and it works. The trouble I'm having is trying to do it with just typing in the parameters that I want and connecting that way. My end goal is to be able to just run code in bash terminal to connect there, but I can't seem to get it right. Is there a way to SEE the code that Mathematica uses to connect with the GUI so that I can just use that to connect easily?
Also, for some reason the "Username"/role that is entered had to match the user account I am logged into on my computer. PostgreSQL is new to me at the moment, so this might just be a n00b mistake.
For those who are curious, I was able to connect successfully with the changes to my code below. I changed "localserver" to "127.0.0.1". It then spat out some role error, so I went into the database and played around the roles for the db and now it seems to be good. I'll post any new discoveries here since I haven't seen many people post about this stuff on the board, and I wish there were more here about it.
"Username" -> "postgres", "Password" -> "$Prompt"]
The $Prompt is great because you can just type any username and password right in there!
And now that I thought of it, here is a screen grab of the code I'm trying at the moment. I'm trying to connect to a Postgres db.
Brian it is always good to copy-paste code in a special code block so other members can easily use it. This should be useful to you:

oh okay! I'll fix it up. :-)
I wish there were emoji on this board...
