Data Source database connection drop
One of our clients has an issue where Yellowfin's Data Source connection to our SQL database will 'drop' or 'fail' despite none of the login credentials changing. This shows on the Admin Console page as a failure to connect to the datasource - see attached screenshot
To resolve, we simply access the data source page and test the connection. It connects successfully and now the reports are able to load.
We have experienced this on YF 7.1 20160325 and also after upgrading to YF7.1 20161209. This is a new issue that has only starting occurring in the past month, whereas the client has been using Yellowfin since July 2015. Yellowfin and the SQL are installed on the same server.
Have you seen this issue before? Do you have any suggestions why this might be occurring?
