Is there any way to use an empty identity for a Splunk DB Connect 2.1.3 connection?

I am trying to use a db connection which uses a jdbc that does not require a username or password. In Splunk DB Connect 2.0.4, I was able to save an empty username in identities.conf and use that. When I updated to version 2.1.3, I get the error:

Unable to decrypt password, please re-enter password on identity

when I try to validate the connection with that empty identity.

I'm surprised it worked in 2.0... were you making the conf files directly, or using the UI?

I was modifying the conf file directly. I just made username and password equal to nothing. ex:

username =
password =

The gui filled in the username with None when I look at it.
