This topic describes the ODBC event source configuration parameters.
To access the ODBC Event Source Configuration Parameters:
- In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration >Services.
- In the Services grid, select a Log Collector service.
- Click under Actions and select View > Config.
The Service Config view is displayed with the Log Collector General tab open.
- In the Log Collector Event Sources tab, select ODBC/Config from the drop-down menu.
The ODBC/Config view in the Event Sources tab has two panels: Event Categories and Sources.
Event Categories Panel
The Event Categories panel provides a way to add or delete event source types.
Available Event Sources Types Dialog
In this dialog, you select the event source type for which you want to define parameters.
This dialog contains the list of event source types downloaded from the list of event source types in the Generic ODBC Type Specification (GOTS) file. If you do not see any event source types in this list, you did not load the content available with Log Collector upgrade to this release.
Use the Sources panel to review, add, modify, and delete Data Source Name (DSN) parameters.
An ODBC DSN tells the Log Collector how to reach an ODBC endpoint. You refer to an ODBC DSN when you configure a data source name with information such as which ODBC driver to use or the host name and port of the ODBC endpoint.
An ODBC DSN is a sequence of name‐value pairs. For information about the valid names for a given ODBC data source type, such as Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, or Oracle, please download the DataDirect Connect Series for ODBC User's Guide and DataDirect Connect Series for ODBC User's Guide in the Progress DataDirect Documentation Library.
The following table provides descriptions of the toolbar options.
Add or Edit DSN Dialog
In this dialog, you add or modify an event source for the selected event source.
