GuardAPI syntax

verify_stap_inspection_engine_with_sequence parameter=value


Parameter Value type Description
addToSchedule String Whether or not to add this inspection engine to the scheduled verification. Valid values:
  • Yes
  • No
datasourceName String If this parameter is specified, advanced verification is performed against the specified datasource. If this parameter is omitted, standard verification is performed.
protocol String Required. The database protocol.
sequence Integer The sequence number of the inspection engine to be removed within the set of inspection engines of the specified type. Use the grdapi list_inspection_engines command with the type option first to verify the sequence number.
stapHost String Required. The host name or IP address of the database server on which the S-TAP is installed.
api_target_host String

Specifies the target hosts where the API executes. Valid values:
  • all_managed: execute on all managed units but not the central manager
  • all: execute on all managed units and the central manager
  • group:<group name>: execute on all managed units identified by <group name>
  • host name or IP address of a managed unit: specified from the central manager to execute on a managed unit.  For example, api_target_host=
  • host name or IP address of the central manager: specified from a managed unit to execute on the central manager. For example, api_target_host=

IP addresses must conform to the IP mode of your network. For dual IP mode, use the same IP protocol with which the managed unit is registered with the central manager. For example, if the registration uses IPv6, specify an IPv6 address. The hostname is independent of IP mode and can be used with any mode.
