Why is it that when I want to connect to the database using an external database connector it only always tries to connect to the database?

Hi, Guys.   I'm a new Mendix user, So I want to connect to an external database but after I connect, the status given is only "connecting to database" and doesn't show any signs of being connected.   I have installed the plugin for the external database connector and database connector.

I also notice in your screenshot there is a connection failure.

To check if your connection is successful, use `Test Connection` button.


For more information, check External Database Connector | Mendix Documentation




You can check in the logs if it throws any error while its stuck.


Also check the user with which you are trying to connect to external database is correct and have required access.
