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.
Access ODBC Configuration Parameters
To access the ODBC Event Source Configuration Parameters:
- Access the Services view by selecting Admin > Services from the NetWitness Platform menu.
- Select a Log Collection service.
The Service Config view is displayed with the Log Collector General tab open.
- Click the Event Sources tab, and select ODBC/DSNs from the drop-down menu.
This workflow illustrates the basic tasks needed to start collecting events through Log Collection.

This topic describes the Data Source Names DSNs configuration parameters.
In the DSNs panel, you can add, delete, or edit DSNs and the DSN name‐value pairs for ODBC Event sources.
