you should not need to set this if you're using the default URL.  The 
default is right here:


if that default is not working when OS_TEST_DBAPI_ADMIN_CONNECTION is 
not set, then that's a bug in oslo.db that should be reported.

It is using pymysql now though, so if you are trying to run against 
python-mysql then you'd need to set this.
