Getting error connecting to informix database db connect

I am getting the following error when connecting to informix database:

Encountered the following error while trying to save: In handler 'databases': Error connecting to database: com.ibm.db2.jcc.am.SqlSyntaxErrorException: [jcc][10165][10051][4.13.80] Invalid database URL syntax: jdbc:informix-sqli://<IP address>/cms:INFORMIXSERVER=demo_on;user=axm1203;password=XXX. ERRORCODE=-4461, SQLSTATE=42815

I have properly placed the ifxjdbc.jar file under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/dbx/bin/lib location.

Is there someother configuration change that needs to be done on database_types config file to include the database URL syntax?

Please let me know.

Thanks,

the documentation specifies to add the 'informix.server=demo_on' as an additional parameter. That should be the name of the informix server connection, not exactly "demo_on" . the documentation could be more clear on that parameter.

Please award points if his helps solve your problem.
