WARN: Establishing SSL connection without server's identity verification is not recommended

In the default instalation jira-core I see in log catalina.out next:

WARN: Establishing SSL connection without server's identity verification is not recommended. According to MySQL 5.5.45+, 5.6.26+ and 5.7.6+ requirements SSL connection must be established by default if explicit option isn't set. For compliance with existing applications not using SSL the verifyServerCertificate property is set to 'false'. You need either to explicitly disable SSL by setting useSSL=false, or set useSSL=true and provide truststore for server certificate verification.

In which configuration file to register the option "useSSL= alse"?

After adding useSSL, it does not take effect. Is there an updated processing method

except that warning is there any degredation of the tool? a functionality not working or so?

If you get that warning during the setup phase, it won't proceed to configure the database, which is a pretty severe degradation of functionality.   ;-)

edit config - /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/dbconfig.xml

in line 


add useSSL=false&amp;

Hi @Nirmani K add it at the end of the url

<url> jdbc:mysql:// address =(protocol = tcp)(host = = 3306)/ jira?sessionVariables = default_storage_engine = InnoDB useSSL = false&amp </ url>

Is it here ?

But what if you're getting this error while attempting to set up Jira and connect it to a database for the first time?

@Richard Cross I have the same issue when starting jira 8.10 with mysql 5.7. Where you able to fix this?

Only by ditching MySQL 5.7 and using PostgreSQL instead.  :-)

You need to add "useSSL=false&amp;" this parameters in the dbconfig file.

Example: <url>jdbc:mysql://localhost:3003/jiradatabase?useUnicode=true&amp;"---ADD HERE---"characterEncoding=UTF8&amp;sessionVariables=default_storage_engine=InnoDB</url>

MySQL - 5.7.31 / mysql-connector-java-5.1.48

Added (useSSL=false) in the connector url:
