All right, I think I have it. I was just now able to connect to a free-tier cluster from
psycopg2. The trick is that you have to URL-encode the equals sign as
%3D. I notice you don’t have the cluster option in your connection string, so you’ll need to add the one that you get from the “connect” dialog box on the Cockroach Cloud website. Sorry that this experience is so bumpy, we’re prioritizing making it better!
