      Description

      In the Conneting Jira to SQL 2014 documentation for Jira 7.10 and 7.11 there exists a problem with the sample dbconfig.xml currently.

       

      Docs:

      https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver0710/connecting-jira-applications-to-sql-server-2014-953144226.html

      https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver/connecting-jira-applications-to-sql-server-2014-938846861.html

       

      The sample dbconfig.xml has the example:

       

      <url>jdbc:sqlserver://;serverName=dbserver;portNumber=1433;databaseName=jiradb</url>

      However I'm confident that there should not be a ';' before the first parameter. But it also curious that these guides indicate to use a serverName= at all. In all the other documents for Connecting to 2012, 2016, and previous 2014 versions, the example URL tag looks like this

      <url>jdbc:sqlserver://dbserver:1433;databaseName=jiradb</url>

       
      Please check this once more. It's ok if there are alternative ways to configure this. But at the very least we need to be sure that our examples work, and I'm confident that if a user tried to use this as we have shown, it would cause Jira to fail to start up.
