Connection / Dashboard Connection tabs
When using the GUI based tools to install and configure your CAST Application Analytics Dashboard, you are required to enter various parameters that will allow you to connect to your chosen RDBMS/CAST Storage Service. The parameters that are required are the same in all GUIs and are listed below:
Select the driver that corresponds to the host RDBMS where your CAST Measurement Service/CAST Dashboard Service is stored:
Note that the CAST Storage Service driver is the only driver available for connecting to a CAST Measurement Service using the AAD Connection tab (this CAST schema can ONLY be installed on a CAST Storage Service). All three drivers are available in the Dashboard connection tab.
Enter the connection parameters for the host RDBMS where your CAST Measurement Service/CAST Dashboard Service is stored:
Enter the name of your CAST Measurement Service or the CAST Dashboard Service depending on the action you are executing.
Enter the user that you want to use to connect with:
|Enter the password that corresponds to the user you entered above.|
|Trusted||Trusted connections are not supported currently. Please do not activate this option.|
When working in Advanced mode in the GUI (select View > Advanced mode), a Debug tab will be visible:
|Debug||Tick this option if you would like to see SQL trace diagnostics in the log. This option is equivalent to the addition of the -jdbc_debug option for the command line interface.|
|Log File||Enter a path to a log file so that execution logs can be saved. This option is equivalent to the addition of the -log_file log.log option for the command line interface.|
When working in Advanced mode in the GUI (select View > Advanced mode), an Advanced tab will be visible:
|Select the Node Level||Please do not modify this option.|
|Synchronize Indicators||Ensures that custom Quality Rule data is transferred from the Dashboard Service to the Measurement Service. This option is always selected when running a consolidation via the CAST Management Studio.|
