Please unify the TLS version when creating a JDBC connection to the DB.

The version of TLS allowed when creating a connection in the control plane of CPD and when creating a connection in Flow Designer is different.

* Customers who have problems this time are using postgreSQL.

Connection in CPD control plane: TLS 1.2 Allowed

Connection with Flow Designer: TLS 1.1 Allowed

Please increase the types of JDBC connectors supported or fix the above part.

    Thanks for submitting this. Our team is requesting more detailed information and commented as follows. "For Connectivity TLS 1.2 should be supported. It is not clear what is being referred as JDBC Connection and to which Data sources. Need additional details on what is being referred to as the inconsistency. Is this related to how connections are created in DFD? Please provide additional detail."
