Connect to Oracle Datasource JIRA 6

We are in the process of moving to Oracle as the Database for Jira.

I am trying to create a Datasource in Jira to estabish the connection.

have done the following

- created a tnsnames.ora file with the details of the Oracle servers ( have been able to connect using the .ora file from my local machine using Oracle SQL developer)

- updated the dbconfig.xml as per

https://confluence.atlassian.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=307038110

- updates the Setenv.bat file as per the above instruction

Looking for some pointers from anybody who has successfully implemented a connection to Oracle via a service name

getting the following error

type Exception report

Please post the contents of the dbconfig.xml.

Are you able to connect to Oracle using plsql? Also please try using a non oracle utility to connect to the database?

Renjith,

We have already established a direct connection to Oracle DB using a SID, however for our production setup we need to connect via a Datasource.

I am in the process of rebuilding my POC jira instance will repost:

dbconfig.xml

tnsnames

and any errors

Regards

Nakhil
