Could Not Commit JPA Transaction (com.activiti.conf.Bootstrapper.createDefaultAdmin)

Problem Statement:

activiti-app.war fails to deploy properly in tomcat, and is erroring out on committing JPA Transaction during creation of default user.

Here's more info on software versions:

  1. WAR - activiti-app-1.11.1
  2. Tomcat - apache-tomcat-8.5.57
  3. MySQL - mysql-8.0.21-macos10.15-x86_64
  4. Connector - mysql-connector-java-8.0.21
  5. OS - MacOS CATALINA 10.15.6 (19G2021)

Problem Details:

I created a schema and user in MySQL, made changes in activiti-app.properties (JDBC & DB settings, Hibernate dialact, email address etc for users), and placed it in tomcat lib folder.

Upon starting tomcat tables get created in the database, hence, my connection seems to be ok, but when it tries to create the default admin user I am getting following error in logs:

Re: Could Not Commit JPA Transaction (com.activiti.conf.Bootstrapper.createDefaultAdmin)

Hi,

I'm not sure what's causing the issue. However, MySQL 8 isn't supported in APS.
