DataGrip PostgreSQL missing driver files

Answered

I'm on Mac (Sierra), just installed datagrip, wanted to connect to a local postgres db.

When I set up the data source, "Test Connection" is unclickable with the message "No provided files for PostgreSQL". However, when I go to the PostgreSQL tab, there's no link to "install missing drivers".

How do I get postgres working? Do I need to install (jdbc?) driver files myself and then point datagrip to them? Is there something else I should have in my settings so datagrip knows where to download them from?

I went to https://jdbc.postgresql.org/download.html  and downloaded the jdbc driver, manually moved it into the DataGrip jdbc-drivers folder and then was able to select it/install it. I thought there was a way to do this automatically through datagrip with the "Install missing drivers" link or something?

@Dwanderson Hi,

You need to download driver file by clicking "Download" link on your data source window. See https://www.jetbrains.com/help/datagrip/2017.1/getting-started-with-datagrip.html#define_database . E.g.:

Thank you.

What about when I installed Datagrip in a server, or another host without internet connection? I have the same problem but for SQL Server.

You need to download driver files and then move them to a computer without internet connection. We can't bundle drivers' files due to license restrictions.
