Database Configuration Check Type

All database compliance checks must be bracketed with the check_type encapsulation and the “Database” designation. This is required to differentiate .audit files intended specifically for databases from other types of compliance audits. The check_type field requires two additional parameters:

  • db_type
  • version

Available database types for audits include:

  • SQLServer
  • Oracle
  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • DB2
  • Informix

The version field is set to “1”.
