Jira 8.13.1 seems to be using MySQL 8 keyword in SELECT query

The versions in use:

MySQL 8; Jira 8.13.1

I am trying to reindex after upgrading from Jira 8.9 to 8.13.1 and MySQL from 5.7 to 8. I get the error - 

Exception during index consistency check: com.atlassian.cache.CacheException: com.atlassian.cache.CacheException: com.atlassian.jira.exception.DataAccessException: org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericDataSourceException: SQL Exception while executing the following:SELECT ID, pname, URL, LEAD, DESCRIPTION, pkey, pcounter, ASSIGNEETYPE, AVATAR, ORIGINALKEY, PROJECTTYPE FROM project ORDER BY pname (You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ', DESCRIPTION, pkey, pcounter, ASSIGNEETYPE, AVATAR, ORIGINALKEY, PROJECTTYPE FR' at line 1)

'LEAD' is one of the new keywords in MySQL 8. Hence the error from the query. 

I tried starting Jira in safe mode to make sure there is no impact from user-installed plugins.

Any thoughts to what could have gone wrong?

hi @chaitanyavaranasi welcome on the community. I sugges you to check Supported platforms page:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver/supported-platforms-938846830.html

At least I can see that different Connector/J driver must be used when switching from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8

https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/8.0.html

Thank you for your response Martin. Yes that did the trick. I thought running apt intall libmariadb-java should suffice. Apparently not.

Also, the official mysql site gives you a .deb file. Do not copy paste that to the lib folder. You need to apt install that deb file and use the final .jar file.

This issue is resolved.

@chaitanyavaranasi I'm happy, it helped :).

Could you accept the answer please? So anyone else can easily use this answer to solve the problem.

Hello Martin,

Can i have the name of the Driver and URL to install or place on the lib folder in Jira installation folder. 

We upgraded Jira Database from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0.20. Because of the Reserved Word LEAD data is not populating on dashboards.
