By importing the certificate of the MSSQL server to the javakeystore, reconfigure it to the datasource SSL port and restarting the application. If you want our help, it helps us helping you if you tell us what you already tried. But yes, the short answer is YES smile

Hi Jonas.

I have done that already. I also tried various statements after the following line in my dbconfig.xml:


I have finally got this working by:

installing the Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.0 for SQL Server to the c:\Program Files folder on dbserver

ran "C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\bin\tomcat7w" //ES//JIRA081013165953

select Java tab and added the following to the Java Classpath:
;C:\Program Files\Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.0 for SQL Server\sqljdbc_6.0\enu\sqljdbc42.jar

changed the following in the C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA\dbconfig.xml file:





restarted Jira

can now connect using the MS JDBC drivers and I now see encrypted connections in SQL server to jiradb
