PostreSQL is the defacto DB used by most open source apps and I was surprised to find out that it's support (or lack of) is not documented in

I was able to get get rundeck to create the database tables using the settings below but it seems that all tables are also empty, which makes me think that the configuration was not fully completed.

dataSource.dbCreate = update
dataSource.url = jdbc:postgresql://

You might have to specify the driver class name.

dataSource.driverClassName = org.postgresql.Driver

I would have thinked about about the same, but to my surprise it it did work without specifying the driverClassName, still this was needed:


Any I found another documentation page at that is saying something about adding


For me this option looks quite weird to me, looks more like an option to test some experimental feature. Didn't try it yet as now is kinda working... but extremely slow. see!topic/rundeck-discuss/2zc5HbBTIKY


The following configuration seems to work well with rundeck 2.5.3-1 and PostgreSQL 9.1:

# Use PostgreSQL as data source
dataSource.driverClassName = org.postgresql.Driver
dataSource.dbCreate = update
dataSource.url = jdbc:postgresql://localhost/rundeck
dataSource.username = rundeck
dataSource.password = secret

# Enables DB for Project configuration storage

# Enable DB for Key Storage
