Splunk DB Connect: Are drivers for Teradata unsupported?

Path Finder


I have to create in Splunk DB Connect a new database connection for teradata.

I have recover the drivers TeraJDBC and insert in /bin/lib of splunk db app but when I verify the drivers it says unsupported and when I try to create the connection I have the below error:

com.zaxxer.hikari.pool.HikariPool$PoolInitializationException: Failed to initialize pool: [Teradata JDBC Driver] [TeraJDBC] [Error 165] [SQLState HY000] isValid: function not supported in this version

I could not get the drivers to show they were installed when going to the Drivers tab of the DB Connect Settings page when following this instructions here -

It stated - From inside the TeraJDBC_... directory, copy or move the two .JAR files (terajdbc4.jar to the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/drivers and tdgssconfig.jar to the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/drivers/terajdbc4-libs) directory.

I was able to get the drivers to show up as installed and it listed the driver version when I put the files in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/lib folder instead. When I tried to connect to a Teradata instance I received an error - "Could not initialize class com.teradata.tdgss.jtdgss.TdgssManager". Restarting Splunk made the error go away and allowed me to connect to and pull data from Teradata


So, per the documentation jcoates listed above, you need to be at version of the Teradata JDBC driver.
