Getting ORA-01017 error when connecting through VS Code using TNS alias

User_IMUOEApr 6 2021 — edited Nov 22 2021

Hi, I'm using the most recent version of VSCode on a Macbook, trying to connect to a database using the tnsnames.ora file on the Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio extension. When trying to create the connection, I get the ORA-01017 Invalid Username/Password error.
I am able to log in and access the database using SQL Developer, using the same tnsnames.ora file and same login details , but doesn't work on VSCode no matter how much I try logging in.
macOS 10.15.7
VSCode 1.55
Can anyone suggest a fix or any alternatives?
