Confluence SSL to MySQL 5.7


We are trying to connect Confluence to MySQL 5.7 using SSL via a google MySQL managed instance.  We have 3 files, server-ca.pem, client-cert,pem, client-key.pem.  I've imported the server certificate into the trust store and created a pkcs12 file with the cert files.  This file was then imported into a keystore.

I'm having trouble passing the keystore location to Confluence java via the file in confluence/bin.  Adding useSSL=true onto the jdbc url in dbconfig.xml gives me an access denied for confluence user message on MySQL.  If I allow insecure connections Confluence user is able to connect.  I was able to get this to work with Jira by following this article but its not working for Confluence:

Any ideas on how to pass the keystore location variables? Here is my lines currently which aren't working:

We eventually found this document which shows how to setup the SSL variables in the JDBC connection.  Hope it helps someone!
