    You will need to port forward the Magda database to localhost to make sure the utility can connect to your Magda database.

    • To do so, You can run kubectl port-forward combined-db-postgresql-0 5432.
      • If you didn't install magda to the default namespace, you can use: kubectl port-forward -n [namespace] combined-db-postgresql-0 5432

    Prior to Magda v1.0.0, you should port-forward pod combined-db-0
