Creating a data source in advanced reporting

Blog Post created by vanfr04 Employee on Apr 10, 2017

When trying to create a data source in the advanced reporting tab, you need to specify the parameters for an jdbc connection to Oracle (thin client)

The interface is asking username/pw, host, port and Service name.

This results in a connection string like :

http://<host name>:<portnumber>:<service name>

This can result in an error message for the connection.

Make sure you specify the following instead:

http://<host name>:<portnumber>/<service name>

This will make your connection work.
