Add an individual database

Add an individual database to the inventory by manually providing information such as database type, host name, and service name.


  1. Click the add database icon to open the Add database dialog.
  2. Use the Database type menu to select the type of database to add.
  3. The fields for defining a database vary depending on the database type. Complete all required fields.
  4. Click OK to add the database.


An individual database is imported to the compliance monitoring database inventory. If you specified database credentials, the credentials are saved and a datasource is created for discovering sensitive data, running vulnerability assessments, and use with other Guardium processes. Configure advanced datasource features such as connection properties using the Setup > Tools and Views > Datasource definitions tool.
