Select Elasticsearch profile from the Drivers panel on the left-hand side (if it is missing check the SQuirreL SQL version or add a new entry to the list through the + button in the upper left corner):

squirell 2 select driver

Select the Extra Class Path tab and Add the JDBC jar. Name the connection and List Drivers to have Class Name populated if it is not already filled-in :

squirell 3 add driver

The driver should now appear in the list with a blue check mark next to its name:
