With the same JDBC connection string (with Kerberos): jdbcUrl=jdbc:hive2://f....;principal=hive/...;hive.server2.proxy.user=..., both Hive Metadata and Hive Metastore stages work well, why JDBC producer complains:

JDBC_00 - Cannot connect to specified database: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to get driver instance for jdbcUrl=jdbc:hive2://f....;principal=hive/...;hive.server2.proxy.user=..."?

What's wrong, how to correct the error? Thanks,

Have you placed JDBC connector jar? And how did you configure it?

Go to 'Package Manager' and install all the required stage libraries. Here particularly Install 'JDBC' . Then you download JDBC connector jar and place here:- /streamsets-datacollector-

I am using mysql-connector-java-5.1.44-bin.jar / mariadb-java-client-2.2.0.jar. Restart your streamsets after placing jars

If you allready placed the. jar, it is possible that you have to configure the driver class name in the legacy tab in addition.

e.g. com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

I had to add that when using a mysql driver lower than version 8.
