Ubuntu – Cannot connect MySQL Workbench to MySQL server

 I have installed MySQL workbench from Snap Store and MySQL server 8.0 using apt. The server is running fine and I can access MySQL shell from terminal. But I am having issues connecting the Workbench to the server. I'm getting

        Cannot Connect to Database Server

Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' to the MySQL server at localhost:3306:

  An AppArmor policy prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient; type="method_call", sender=":1.125" (uid=1000 pid=7944 comm="/snap/mysql-workbench-community/5/usr/bin/mysql- wo" label="snap.mysql-workbench-community.mysql-workbench- community (enforce)") interface="org.freedesktop.Secret.Service" member="OpenSession” error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.13" (uid=1000 pid=2044 comm="/usr/bin/gnome- keyring-daemon –daemonize –login" label="unconfined")

  • You have installed MySQLWorkbench as a Snap package. You want to store the database password(s) in the Gnome Passwords & Keys facility.

    However, a Snap package is sandboxed; it is not by default allowed to access this service. When you choose "Store in keychain" MySQLWorkbench is blocked by AppArmor.

    You need to enter a command to allow this package to access the service. The command is:

    sudo snap connect mysql-workbench-community:password-manager-service :password-manager-service

    I got this from the discussion at this site.
