Why is the Splunk DB connect app with SQLite not working?


I know there are multiple answers related to using DB Connector app with SQLite but none of them has provided me with a solution.
This is my configuration:

$JAVA_HOME is set to  /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_112/jre
On $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/bin/lib, I have the sqlite-jdbc-

On splunkappdbconnect/local/dbconnection_types.conf

displayName = SQLite
serviceClass  = com.splunk.dbx2.DefaultDBX2JDBC
jdbcDriverClass = org.sqlite.JDBC
jdbcUrlFormat = jdbc:SQLite:<database>
ui_default_catalot = $database$

On splunkappdbconnect/local/dbconnections.conf:

connection_type = SQLite
database = /home/myUser/Data.db
host = localhost
identity = theBoss
jdbcUrlFormat = jdbc:SQLite:<database>
jdbcUseSSL = 0

My SQLite db file is Data.db and it's located at /home/myUser/.

So the first thing I got when I restarted the splunk app were some "Invalid key in stanza" errors.

1. Invalid key in stanza [mydb] in .... jdbcUrlFormat (value: jdbc:SQLite:<database>)
2. Invalid key in stanza [rpcstart://default]  in ... javahome (value: /user/java/jdk1.8.0_122/jre)
3. Invalid key in stanza [rpcstart:://default] in .. useSSL (value : 0)

Note that I didn't write those last two stanzas.

On the splunk server, there is no errors:
Splunk DB Connect->Configuration->Settings:

The JRE installation path is correct.
There is a JVM Option (-Ddw.server.applicationConnectors[0].port=9998)
Task server Port = 9998

Splunk DB Connect->Configuration->Drivers:

I can see the SQLite as a Driver Name, but on the Installed column shows as "NO".

On Configuration->Database:

I can see mydb as a connection which is good.

Data Lab -> SQL Explorer

If I try to select mydb as a connection, the field turns red with the "invalid database connection" message.

So this is the issue. How can I access my SQLite db from Splunk DB Connect?

Splunk DB Connect version = 3.1.1'
Linux Machine (RedHat)
java -version

Java version "1.8.0_112"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_112-b15)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.112-b15, mixed mode)

Re: Why is the Splunk DB connect app with SQLite not working?


I just found the solution. I was reading an old version of the documentaiton. 😐
The driver location was changed on the newest DB connect app to splunkappdb_connect/drivers/.

I made a copy of the of the SQLite driver from $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/bin/lib to /splunk_app_db_connect/drivers/ and now it's working.
