ODBC on the new "Qlik Sense Business Free 30-day trial"


Like most, I have been surprised by Qlik taking away the free version of Qlik Sense Desktop so I decided to try the free 30-day trial version to do a small project.
I want to add data from a MySQL Community database (not Enterprise). I have investigated and seen that this is done with an ODBC data connection, which I have already configured.
The problem is that when I try to make the connection, this data source does not exist:

Is there a way I can connect my MySQL Community database with Qlik Sense Business (cloud)?
