Using Bamboo Install with Postgresql - require JDBC Jar file

While installing Bamboo on our fresh Redhat 7 server.

I just wanted to share that when selecting postgresql as Database back-end an error ocurs, cannot find postgresql driver.


an additional jar file needs to be copied to /WEB_INF/lib directory.


some information:

Redhat: 7

Bamboo version: 6.4.1

Postgresql: 10.3


here is what I did:

go to:

download: postgresql-42.2.2.jar

add file to: atlassian-bamboo-6.4.1/atlassian-bamboo/WEB-INF/lib


Postgresql is now working!

Hi Edwyn,

If you use one of the supported versions of PostgreSQLs, you wouldn't have to install a JDBC manually. PostgreSQL is supported only when used with the JDBC driver bundled with Bamboo.

As per the supported platforms document, Postgresql 10.3 is not listed in the supported database section for Bamboo 6.4.1. This should be the reason why you had to Install a driver manually.

Hope that clarifies.
