A query configuration needs include the platform, entity, and fields for the query.
Control Compliance Suite supports query operations on Windows, SQL, UNIX, and Oracle platforms. Every platform has its entities. An entity contains the fields that define the attributes or properties of the objects. A query configuration requires at least one field.
Use Entity Browser to find the entity and platform of any field. Otherwise, the system only displays the entities and the associated fields of the selected platform.
Do one of the following to access Entity Browser:
Click the button alongside the Entity field.
On Entity and Fields, click View all platforms, entities, and fields.
To get the description of a field, click the link Click here to view field description. For example: For Windows, select Device Driver Name, and click the link to see the description, 'This field returns the internal name of the device driver.' Selected fields appear marked with ticks.
To configure query attributes
On the Entity and Fields panel of the Create or Edit Query wizard, in the Platform field, enter the platform that you want to query.
In the Entity field, from the list of entities for the selected platform, enter the entity that you want to query.
In Available fields, select fields and click the right arrow to include them in the list of Selected fields.
To move all fields, click the double arrows.
In the Selected fields pane, use the up and down arrows to provide the order for the results.
