MySQL Question

Can't find heroku JAWSDB host

I'm looking to connect my JAWSDB to my local mysql client. On the JAWSDB docs on Heroku we get this breakdown of the database url:

mysql://user:pass@instance:port/default_schema


This is how my database url is formatted. My mysql client (MYSQL Workbench) is asking for a 'host'. What part of the url do I put here? Or where can I find this information?

Answer

It turns out 'instance' in the URL is the host.
