connecting crowd to mysql - why aren't all the tables being created?

I'm connecting my crowd instance to a mysql database and am getting some errors in the logs like:

2018-06-28 17:43:57,724 http-nio-8095-exec-7 ERROR [engine.jdbc.spi.SqlExceptionHelper] Table 'crowd.cwd_property' doesn't exist
2018-06-28 17:43:57,782 http-nio-8095-exec-7 ERROR [engine.jdbc.spi.SqlExceptionHelper] Table 'crowd.cwd_cluster_job' doesn't exist

when I look in mysql, those specific tables do appear to be missing:

aembree @ dev : ~ [ 18:00 ] >>> sudo mysql -B --execute 'use crowd; show tables;'

why were some tables created, but others weren't? I confirmed I have 'transaction-isolation = READ-COMMITTED' set and the database engine is innoDB by default.

Is this a new installation of Crowd? Or is this an upgrade? What version is this?

I would want to confirm that you are following this guide if using MySQL: https://confluence.atlassian.com/crowd/mysql-4030924.html

When the database is created, are you using the utf8 encoding and the utf8_bin collation?

You can detect the cause for this using the below SQL statements, replacing <DATABASE_NAME> in each:

Make sure to set MySQL to use the information_schema DB to make the queries below work. Use this command "Use information_schema" before and replace <DATABASE_NAME> with confluence database name you want to check.

SELECT schema_name, default_character_set_name, default_collation_name FROM schemata WHERE schema_name = '<DATABASE_NAME>' AND (default_character_set_name <> 'utf8' OR default_collation_name <> 'utf8_bin');
SELECT table_name, table_collation, engine FROM tables WHERE table_schema = '<DATABASE_NAME>' AND table_collation <> 'utf8_bin';
SELECT table_name, column_name, character_set_name, collation_name FROM columns WHERE table_schema = '<DATABASE_NAME>' and data_type in ('varchar', 'text') and (character_set_name <> 'utf8' OR collation_name <> 'utf8_bin');

If any rows are returned in any of those three queries, then there is something in the database which is either not set to use utf8 encoding, or does not have the utf8_bin collation.

Also, it could be that the user account Crowd is setup to use might not have been granted all the rights to create the necessary tables/relations, but if that happens then we typically should see that in the logs when first started.

looks like I forgot the collation! thanks
