Data Source Configuration

Tomcat Datasource Configuration

This is the preferred method for configuring database connections and the only way to configure more than one connection

  1. Configure the data source by following the "Configure Tomcat" instructions for your specific database. Be sure to replace the name="jdbc/confluence" parameter with name="jdbc/<connection name>"
  2. Restart Confluence
  3. You should now be able to reference your data source using the value you set in <connection name> above.

Admin Screen

Only one connection can be configured this way. This admin screen is intended for testing purposes. Production systems should use the tomcat datasource connections.
