Database JDBC Drivers

This page provides the download links for the JDBC drivers for all databases currently supported for Confluence. You will need to make the driver available to your application server, as described in the appropriate setup guide.

Note: We bundle some JDBC drivers with Confluence, as shown below. If you are using a direct JDBC connection, you don't need to download or install drivers that are bundled. If you are connecting via a datasource, or if you are using a database whose driver is not bundled, you will need to download and install the drivers manually.

Due to licensing constraints, Oracle drivers are not bundled with Confluence.

For Oracle 12c use the driver (ojdbc7.jar)

We recommend using the thin drivers only. See the Oracle JDBC driver FAQ.

If you attempt to use an unsupported or custom JDBC driver (or a driverClassName from an unsupported or custom driver in your JINDI datasource connection) collaborative editing will fail. You must use a supported driver.
