What database-type values are valid for Oracle?

Daniel Eads Community Champion Sep 16, 2015

What values are valid for the database-type element in dbconfig.xml for Oracle databases?

Our file has oracle10g set even though our actual database is Oracle 11g. We're upgrading to Oracle 12c right now to maintain support - can the value just be updated to oracle12c in the file?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jira-database-config>
  <name>defaultDS</name>
  <delegator-name>default</delegator-name>
  <database-type>oracle10g</database-type>
  <jdbc-datasource>
    <url>jdbc:oracle:thin:@[HOSTNAME]:[PORT]:[SERVICE]</url>
    <driver-class>oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver</driver-class>

May have answered this myself - the following error occurred for both oracle11g and oracle12c as the value: 2015-09-16 12:25:47,846 localhost-startStop-1 ERROR [atlassian.jira.startup.LauncherContextListener] Unable to start JIRA. com.google.common.util.concurrent.UncheckedExecutionException: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not find a field-type definition with name "oracle11g"

Hello!

I believe the only thing you would have to do is to run the config tool again and point JIRA to same database (upgraded, then test the connection and see if your {{$JIRA_Home/dbconfig.xml}} file changes this value). This guide below can provide you better understanding of that:
