Debezium starts, finds no tables?

I’m using SQL Server connector and the logs show Locking captured tables [] - no tables are captured. I’ve verified my schema, table, and database. I’ve tried the following, all with topics pre-created… (also specify all variables from Debezium SQL docs)

  • “table.include.list” : “testTable” && “schema.include.list”: “dbo”
  • “table.include.list” : “dbo.testTable” && “schema.include.list”: “dbo”
  • “table.include.list” : “DBNAME.dbo.testTable” && “schema.include.list”: “dbo”
  • “table.include.list” : “DBNAME.dbo.testTable”
  • “table.include.list” : “dbo.testTable”

Running out of ideas, and no data is captured… there are thousands of records in the table and its takes ~25min to redeploy docker and cycle thru for tests

Hi, to help debug this, I suggest enabling TRACE level logging on the connector to see if this line gets printed. If it gets printed, then the issue is with filters; if not, then the problem is upstream. I’m not sure where we’d look if it’s the latter but let’s see if we even need to first.
