Date filed Issue number Description
2020-08-31 DBX-5169 `dbxquery` could not parse column value containing Chinese Traditional text
2020-06-24 DBX-5099 Error handling a request: java.lang.NullPointerException: null
2020-06-22 DBX-5096 After upgrade DBconnect 3.3+ dbxquery breaks with error "Error in 'dbxquery' command: External search command exited unexpectedly with non-zero error code 1"

Workaround:
DBconnect 3.3+ modifies the parameters for the dbxquery command.

If you had a local override from a DBX version older than 3.3, this will contain configuration and arguments for the old version of the command.


Solution is to remove/review the whole [dbxquery] stanza from commands.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/local
