SSL error when enabling webMethods Adapter for JDBC

What are trying to achieve? Please describe in detail.

Trying to enable webMethods Adapter for JDBC through Integration Server Administration UI (by navigating to Adapters > webMethods Adapter for JDBC > Connections and clicking enable).

However, when I attempt to enable, I get the error shown below. I’ve also tried setting up a new connection (non SSL), and still get the same error as shown below.

Note: When testing connection to DB using DBeaver and no SSL, I am able to connect successfully.

Do you get any error messages? Please provide a full error message screenshot and log file.

Are you using a free trial or a product with a customer license?

Licensed product

I faced this when I tried to communicate to a target ADFS server and solved it by importing the target’s CA certificate into the IS Truststore.
However, I’m unsure if this will apply for JDBC (I don’t see why not, as it’s TLS), but give it a try.


This is not the issue we are facing. SSL is not in picture for client or a server because it’s happening on a local dev machine. Everything is installed on local.


in this case you should check your DB config as the DB presents a certificate which the IS cannot validate due to missing intermediate and/or root certificates.

Can you share your JDBC connection config so we can check it?


Here is the JDBC configuration as requested.

Use encrypt=true;trustServerCertificate=true in the other properties. Latest Microsoft JDBC Driver enforces the encryption by default.
