How to configure Splunk db connect app using two JDBC drivers

Path Finder

I followed

But it's not working for me.

I installed latest version of db_connect(3.3) and JRE-11. I am trying to use both Oracle 11 and 12 drivers.

I created local db_connection_types.conf and places both ORJDBC11,12 under splunk_app_db_connect>drivers but splunk is picking only higher version of it.

Any ideas?

Make sure that you have updated the ownership of both drivers to splunk:splunk (assuming that is your Splunk user). If owned by root then dbconnect will ignore them.

You also need to cycle the Splunk daemon after installing the new drivers. Afterwards you should see both versions available.
