I have installed aodh service in queens on ubuntu 16.04 after the configuration when I tried to create or list alarm its showing below error. Do I need to modify any other (aodh.api.conf) configurations. Please help on this, if any one faced this kind of errors.

This message indicates something is wrong with your configuration:

ERROR aodh NoMatches: No '' driver found, looking for 'mysql+pymsql'

I am confused, though, since I don't see any reference to an driver in the documentation. Are there other messages around this ERROR?

My guess: It has something to do with the database connection settings; see

Hi Bernd,

Even I have the same doubt for " driver", configurations are made as per the openstack documents.

Ensure "gnocchi_external_project_owner = service" in aodh.conf and it has been fixed.
