    How to connect to dashDB instance


      I'm trying to create a connection in Qlik Sense Desktop to a hosted dashDB.  I downloaded and installed the connector package.  In Qlik Sense Desktop, I'm doing the following:

      1. Click Add Data
      2. Click IBM DB2
      3. Paste in the values for Host name, Port, Database, User name, and Password.
      4. Click the next arrow


      The following is displayed:


      Test Connection

      Error message: Please check the values for Username, Password, Host and other properties. Description: General error


      The database says it is compatible with DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, Version 10.5 or later. 


      I have been able to successfully connect to this database using a DB2 driver from a different desktop app.  Any ideas on how to fix this?  Or any ideas on how to get a more useful error message?
