Table of contents


When creating a new Microsoft SQL Server data source on the BizDataX Portal select Analyzer type to be SQL Server data source analyzer.

Fill in a name of the data source, specify the connection string and optionally add a note.

You can configure additional analysis settings for sampling with the Analysis settings field.

The sampling settings are used to configure the algorithm used to select a data sample from a table used in sensitive data discovery. This can be used to control performance and quality of sample data used during sensitive data discovery. Available options are:

  • sample=top Selects first N records in a table. Excellent performance.
  • sample=sample Selects N records in a table using probabilities. Good performance.
  • sample=random Selects N records randomly. Low performance, but good quality of data. This is the default setting.
