With VS2017 , MySQL Visual Studio Integration V2.0.5 m4 and MySQL Server 8.0.11  Connections are reporting error in Authentication Method (Caching_sha2_password). 

Should be updated soon.

Best regards

How to repeat:
Start VS2017 with MySQL Visual Studio Integration2.0.5 m4 installed. Open Server Explorer and try to establish a Connection to MySQL Server 8.0.11 

Suggested fix:
Enable connections to the MySQL server with accounts that authenticate with the sha256_password plugin
