Splunk DB Connect: When trying to connect to MySQL, why am I receiving "jdbcUrlFormat is a mandatory parameter for the database connection" error message?


I'm trying to connect Splunk to MySQL. I've already downloaded "mysql-connector-java-5.1.40-bin" and put it in the directory. But the following error appeared, what can it be?

Error: jdbcUrlFormat is a mandatory parameter for the database connection.

In db_connection_types.conf it looks like this:

displayName = MySQL
serviceClass = com.splunk.dbx2.MySQLJDBC
jdbcUrlFormat = jdbc:mysql://<host>:<port>/<database>
jdbcUrlSSLFormat = jdbc:mysql://<host>:<port>/<database>?useSSL=true&requireSSL=true&verifyServerCertificate=false
jdbcDriverClass = com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
port = 3306
testQuery = SELECT 1
ui_default_catalog = $database$

because that's supported by default, I would expect it to work out of the box. Try rolling back any customizations?
