Crowd using SQL Server for internal database

Hello, I am not sure what to enter on the Crowd installation wizard when I want to connect to a MS Sql Server database. The wizard prompts you for the following. Most fields are auto-filled once I select 'JDBC connection' for the database type.

Type of database: JDBC connection

Database: Microsoft SQL Server

Driver class name: net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver

JDBC URL: jdbc:jtds:sqlserver::/localhost:1433/crowd

Username: xxxx

Password: xxxx

Hibernate dialect: org.hibernate.dialect.SQLServerDialect

I am not familiar with the JDBC connection string syntax so I'm sure I'm missing something simple. I am used to a prompt for host server and database, but not sure where that gets entered.

Thanks for any help!

I figured out the syntax for SQL Server. I realized that I could look at my Jira dbconfig file to see a sample URL format. The format below worked for me.

Hi Thomas,

The host server and database are specified in the JDBC URL. We happen to use SQL Server as an example in our doc: Running the Setup Wizard:

for SQL Server, the default URL is jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://localhost:1433/crowd , and if you wish to connect to crowddb instead, modify the URL so that it looks like this: jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://localhost:1433/crowddb

In the JDBC URL above, the host server is "localhost" and the database names are "crowd" and "crowddb".

I look forward to hearing whether you can connect to your MS SQL database during the setup Wizard for Crow now.
