Cannot determine embedded database driver class for database type NONE while running jar

As mentioned in the headline of question I am facing issue Cannot determine embedded database driver class for database type NONE. The application I have built is on spring boot and working fine when I run the code in intellij.

I have followed several questions regarding the same exception and they suggested that I need to add spring.datasource properties in my application.properties file. I already have them and still facing the same issue. This issue occurs when I create jar file using artifacts of intellij and then run it by the following command.
java – jar myJar.jar

My application.properties file

# ===============================
# = DATA SOURCE
# ===============================
spring.datasource.url = jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/db_wssmith?useSSL=false
spring.datasource.username = 
spring.datasource.password = 
spring.datasource.driver-class-name=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

Error Log while running jar

ERROR org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication – Application startup failed

If you want an embedded database please put a supported one on the classpath. If you have database settings to be loaded from a particular profile you may need to active it (no profiles are currently active).

Use maven command instead of using intellij.
Should work.
