After creating a collector to collect from PostgreSQL Database, the error below is displayed when testing the collector:

Collector test failed:
com.aveksa.server.runtime.ServerException: Test request failed with response:
com.aveksa.sdk.collector.CollectionException: com.aveksa.common.DataReadException:

In the example below, the collector test failure happened when connecting to an RSA SecurID appliance running Authentication Manager 8.1:

CauseWhen creating a collector from a PostgreSQL database, the default URL contains an extra instance of the string jdbc:, as in the example below:

You have to manually download and add the appropriate PostgreSQL JDBC driver to the IMG server using the suitable permissions.

To fix the database connection URL

Edit the collector Database Connection URL to remove the extra jdbc: value. The URL should look like the example below:


To fix the missing/incompatible driver

  1. Download the latest PostgreSQL JDBC4 driver that is compatible with IMG 6.9.1 JDK 1.6 from the PostgreSQL website (i. e., postgresql-9.4-1205.jdbc4.jar).
  2. Use any file transfer tool (for example, WinSCP, FileZilla, etc.) to copy the downloaded .jar file to the IMG server and into /home/oracle/jboss/server/default/deploy/aveksa.ear/aveksa.war/WEB-INF/LocalAgent/common/lib/.
  3. Make sure the file owners are set to oracle:oinstall, and the file permissions are set to rw- for both owner and group owner.
  4. When logged in as root, use the commands below to change permissions as root:
cd /home/oracle/jboss-4.2.2.GA/server/default/deploy/aveksa.ear/aveksa.war/WEB-INF/LocalAgent/common/lib/
chown oracle:oinstall postgresql-9.4-1205.jdbc4.jar
chmod 660 postgresql-9.4-1205.jdbc4.jar

  1. Restart the Identity Governance and Lifecycle services:
acm restart
