To connect a database via a SSH tunnel, click the Connect to a Private Network link at the bottom right.

Once submitted, the database will be connected automatically and queries can be ran off of it right away. Please refer to the troubleshooting guide on common connection errors if adding a database is unsuccessful,

Deleting a Database

From there, click on the "Disconnect Database" button seen in the bottom right of the database page.
