My Atlassian Connect addon does not connect with database


I'm currently developing an addon for Atlassian Connect (JIRA) and I have problems on database connection.
I have followed the documentation and I have two environments on config.json: development and production.

On the development environment I'm using sqlite storage, only for testing purposes. It works nice, and the configuration is like this:

"store": {
"adapter": "jugglingdb",
"type": "sqlite3",
"database": "store.db"

On the production environment I need a real database, so I have tried with Postgres and Mysql, but none of this have worked. For Postgres, this was the database configuration:

"store": {
"adapter": "jugglingdb",
"type": "postgres",
"url": "postgresql://my_server:my_port/addon_database_name?user=my_user&password=my_pass"

I'm using that dependencies for that:

"jugglingdb": "0.2.14",

And the lifecycle of the addon is only controlling installed event (and I'm not doing any special management here):

"lifecycle": {
"installed": "/installed"

But when I'm installing the addon on my JIRA, I've got this error:

[ 2015-08-20 15:15:04.0106 17383/7fbb01dd2700 App/Poo/AnalyticsCollection.cpp:104 ]: Process (pid=12687, group=/var/www/AtlassianPlugin/public) no longer exists! Detaching it from the pool.

App 12709 stderr: at readableAddChunk (_stream_readable.js:163:16)

If I use the Mysql database on the production environment, the config is like this:

"store": {
"adapter": "jugglingdb",
"type": "mysql",
"url": "jdbc:mysql://my_server:my_port/addon_database_name?user=my_user&password=my_pass"

I'm using that dependencies for that:

"jugglingdb": "0.2.14",

And it also breaks. Now, the error is:

connection.connect err { [Error: connect ECONNREFUSED]
syscall: 'connect',
fatal: true }


I have tested that the databases can be reach for any pc.

Can anyone tell me more about this?

I have resolved the problem, it was a wrong database URL. The correct database URL schema is:


This was exactly my issue, thanks very much!

Are you actually replacing "url": "postgresql://my_server:my_port/addon_database_name?user=my_user&password=my_pass" with your own server, port, database name, username and password. Aka, do you actually have a database and where is it running?

If you don't have a database yet then I can highly recommend Amazon RDS:
