Hi @dgto3,

The error cannot connect to localhost indicates that you are specifying localhost as MySQL hostname instead of MySQL Managed database hostname.

Please check our below documentation which will guide you step by step for accessing MySQL managed database cluster with MySQL workbench.

I hope this helps!
