private key conversion doesn't seem to work without password

See original GitHub issue

System information:

  • Void Linux
  • DBeaver version 7.2.2
  • Additional extensions: none

Connection specification:

  • mariadb via SSH tunnel
  • Authentication: Public Key

My SSH tunnel couldn’t be opened. It appears the set private key needed conversion, which seemed to have failed due to the fact that my key isn’t equipped with a password itself.

2020-10-20 19:04:52.395 - Specified private key cannot be converted:
Saving key "/tmp/.dbeaver-temp5908045879929263143/mariaDB-17546caca6c-72ad6451a667c46f.pem" failed: passphrase is too short (minimum five characters).
