2538866 - Plateau Report Developer connection error 500 after recent Instance refresh


After a recent refresh, connecting with Plateau Report Developer (PRD) client, the connection fails with error:

 Failed: java.sql.SQLException: Server returned HTTP response code: 500 for URL: https://<LMS-URL>/vjdbc/vjdbc


SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Validate the PRD client was connecting successfully before an Instance is refreshed.
  2. After Instance refresh, ensure default REPORT_DEVELOPER security role exists within Learning Administration and is assigned to the same admin.
  3. Open the PRD client and test connection to receive the error.


VJDBC connection details on database may need to be modified after some Instance Refreshes


A Customer Success case can be opened to request Operations DB team to run the VJDBC script for 500 error.
