 My postgres database has been set up to use peer authentication and I am not sure how to tell Sequelize to use this method? Currently we are using the following: new Sequelize("postgres://127.0.0.1/dbname", {});  I also tried the following which did not work new Sequelize("postgresql:///dbname?host=/var/lib/postgresql");  In both cases I get the error: SequelizeBaseError: password authentication failed for user"  Can anyone help?

 A bit more exploration shows the following will do the job: new Sequelize('mydb', undefined, undefined, { host: '/var/run/postgresql' dialect: 'postgres' });  The actual connection is handled by the package 'pg' and this was documented in an issue. Note, I have tested this to work with pg@6.4.1 and sequelize@4.4.2.
