Workbench show an error "User authentication failed" for connections without password or ssh key for ssh tunnel. Workbench version 6 was working with this configuration. Workbench should:
- make work this connection as before
- or require a password or ssh key
- or return more specific error

How to repeat:
Try to connect to a database using SSH tunnel without password and ssh key for ssh connection.

I just added an image with a configuration example. So, I entered next parameters: SSH hostname, SSH username, MySQL hostname, MySQL server port, username, password. Entering only these parameters Workbench returns an auth error in version 8 when password and SSH key aren't required by the server.
If I enter SSH password and add it as required on the server then Workbench doesn't show this error.

Sorry, but I passed to use another app and configuration on server is different now. So, I don't have interest to spend time on putting the right environment for testing.
