Error while connecting JIRA to mysql

Installed mysql 8.0

     configured according to instructions

     brought up firefox and when I try to connect I get "could not find driver with class name com.mysql.cj.jdbc.Driver'


I made sure mysql-connector-java.jar file is located in the install directory


Not sure what is missing
