This topic describes the Data Source Names DSNs configuration parameters.

Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) event sources require Data Source Names (DSNs) so you need to define DSNs with their associate value pairs for ODBC event source configuration. This topic describes the DSN configuration parameters.

To access the ODBC DSNs Event Source Configuration Parameters:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration >Services.
  2. In the Services grid, select a Log Collector service.
  3. Click AdvcdExpandBtn.PNGunder Actions and select View > Config.
  4. From the Event Sources tab, select ODBC/DSNs from the drop-down menus.

Features

The ODBC/DSNs view in Event Sources has one panel: the DSN panel.

DSN Panel

In the DSNs panel, you can add, delete, or edit DSNs and the DSN name‐value pairs for ODBC Event sources.

                          
FeatureDescription
Icon-Add.pngDisplays the Add DSN dialog in which you define a DSN and its parameters.
Icon_Delete_sm.pngDeletes the selected DSNs.
icon-edit.pngDisplays the Edit DSN dialog in which you edit the name-value pairs for the selected DSN.
ManageDSNTemplatesBTN.PNGDisplays the Manage DSN Templates dialog in which you can add or delete DSN name-value pair templates.

Add or Edit DSN Dialog

In this dialog, you add or modify a file directory for the selected event source.

                    
FeatureDescription
DSN TemplateSelect a predefined DSN value name-value pairs template for the DSN.
DSN Name*Add the name of the DSN.  You cannot edit a DSN name after you add it.
This value must correspond with a DSN entry in the ODBC.ini file. Valid value is a character string that is restricted to the following characters:
[_a-zA-Z][_a-zA-Z0-9]*
This means that the file directory must start with a letter followed by numbers, letters, and underscores (for example, oracle_executive_compensation).
