I am trying to configure eazyBI plugin v6.0 on an on-premise instance of JIRA Service Desk 4.8.0, hosted on Windows server.
Using integrated authentication for DB connections is a mandatory security requirement in our environment. Jira SD connects to Microsoft SQL Server, using the Microsoft SQL Server JDBC driver with integrated Windows authentication enabled (
integratedauthentication=true). This all works fine.
I ran into an unexpected issue when adding the eazyBI plugin, then configured its DB connection to SQL Server with integrated authentication enabled.
I tried to find an option to enable Windows integrated authentication in the easyBI database connection. But unfortunately specifying a user name is required, so I ended up with these connection settings:
- Database type: Microsoft SQL Server / Microsoft JDBC driver
- Host: same as that used for Jira SD
- Database: separate DB for easyBI
- Username and Domain: the Windows account that Jira SD runs under
- Database advanced settings:
- Password: empty, expecting integrated authentication to work
Clicking Update settings at this point fails with the following error:
<RootPath>\JiraSD\bin\sqljdbc_auth.dllalready loaded in another classloader
The path in the error message is the correct location of the native
sqljdbc_auth.dll file used by Jira SD to enable its integrated authentication to the DB.
If I understand correctly, it appears that the easyBI plugin settings conflict with those of Jira SD here?
At this point, I am not sure how to resolve the issue and proceed with further evaluation.
Any and all advice would be welcome and appreciated!
