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.
Add or Edit DSN Dialog
In this dialog, you add or modify a file directory for the selected event source.
|DSN Template||Select 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:
This means that the file directory must start with a letter followed by numbers, letters, and underscores (for example, oracle_executive_compensation).
Name - Enter or modify the parameter name.
Value - Enter or modify the value associated with the parameter name.
|Cancel||Closes the dialog without adding the DSN and its name-value pairs or saving modifications to the name-value pairs.|
|Save||Adds the DSN and its name-value pairs or saves modifications to the name-value pairs.|
Manage DSN Templates Dialog
In this dialog, you can add or delete DSN name-value pair templates.
