Javamelody not monitoring JDBC

I've installed Javamelody (v1.73.0) on my installation of Jira (7.10.1).  I've got Jira configured to use JDNI, and i've following all the instructions I've found (my redacted server.xml and dbconfig.cfg are below), Jira is working, but it doesn't seem to be monitoring my SQL.  The database is MS SQL Server 2016.  I must have missed a step, but I'm not sure what - can anyone provide any insight into what I've misconfigured?





(some of the values may not be required)

<validation-query>select 1</validation-query>


 <Context path="" docBase="${catalina.home}/atlassian-jira" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">
<Resource name="JiraDS" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"
validationQuery="select 1"

And the corresponding entry in the server.xml file, it started working immediately after restarting the Jira service. 

None of the above is supposed to work as is.

You are supposed to use a name with jdbc like:


There is documentation for that:
