    the job log should contain the full Java exception stack trace. Could you please post that? If the stack trace and exception message do not show up inside the Eclipse job log viewer, take a note of the "Work area" value in the job log header and browse to that directory in the filesystem. Look for the job log text file (typically DSE.log) in this directory and open it in a text editor. It often contains more detailed information than the XML version of the log that will be stored in the database.

    One thing to check is whether the JDK version your IDM runtime uses is compatible with your version of MySQL Connector/J, and whether you can successfully compile and run a small sample program such as this using Connector/J with the same JDK version that the IDM runtime is using.

    Kind regards, Lambert

    • Have you applied step 5 of the SAP note you mentioned above, i.e.

      Navigate to Identity Center home ./Service-Scripts and open <dispatcher_name>.prop file. Verify the JDBC driver file or other jar file is now added in section DSECLASSPATH.

      Can you post the content of your <dispatcher_name>.prop file here?

    you can save the mysql jdbc jar file into the "identity center\java" folder, and then restart the dispatcher. You do not need to include the jdbc driver path in the classpath manually.
