did you define your port?

Hey @Brian_rapid7 Can you let us know a little more about the connection settings, action you’re using or plan to use, and the inputs? Looks like we need to improve the error handling on this one at the very least. I created a ticket for engineering on that while we await for further information to help resolve the issue.


I was just trying to test the connection, and pulling info from a MS SQL server , no inputs / actions used
and Port is optional , I used the default port for MS SQL

Thanks @Brian_rapid7, we’re looking into it.

Default port the plugin uses is one of the default SQL ports, it did not look for the default MS SQL port we used so i had to specify my port

APP was looking for something else , i had to specify 1433

Hey @Brian_rapid7, If I understand you correctly, it is working now that you specified the port? If so, we can improve the documentation and user experience.

Yes , you cannot leave it blank ( default doesnt work )

We have added default port support, if the port field is omitted in the connection.
1433 for MSSQL and 3306 for MySQL.

Thanks for reporting.
