New Member

According the Splunk, if your database not listed in Splunk DB Connect 3, is necessary configure the new database according the link

Was Configurated according this

  1. Driver download and input and the drivers directory
  2. Include in directory local, the file db_connection_types.conf with this configuration

After this, the splunk was restarted and no have any information of this database in my Splunk Db Connect

For undefined/unsupported databases, you'll need to:

  1. Install JDBC driver file.
  2. Add custom database to db_connection_type.conf
    example of db_connection_type.conf:


    displayName = dummy_DB
    serviceClass = com.splunk.dbx2.DefaultDBX2JDBC
    jdbcDriverClass = $JDBC driver class$
    jdbcUrlFormat = $JDBC URI Format$
    ui_default_catalog = $database$

Once you restarted Splunk, you can go configuration -> Connections -> New connection.
dummy_DB should be available in dropdownlist of "Connection Type"
