Creating a Database Resource

You must be a Spectrum Technology Platform administrator (admin) or Spatial administrator (spatial-admin) to perform this task. If you are a Spatial sub-administrator (spatial-sub-admin), then you must have permission to the folder that you are editing.

To create a database resource for Spectrum:

  1. Open Management Console.
  2. Go to Resources > Spectrum Databases.
    If you do not see the Spectrum Databases menu, then you do not need to define database resources.
  3. Click the Add button to create a new database resource.
  4. Enter a name for the database resource in the Name field. The name can be anything you choose.
  5. In the Module field, select the name of your module.
    If you have modules that use Spectrum databases, they display in the Module field.
    Note: Modules may have additional fields and settings beyond what the following steps describe. If this is the case, see Spectrum Databases for more details about the module you have installed.
  6. If applicable, in the Type field, select the type of data.
    A list of available databases displays in the table, including description and vintage.
  7. Select one or more entries from the list.

    This list should include the data you installed using the productdata install command as described in Adding Data to Spectrum.

  8. Click Save to create the database.

A list of the Spectrum databases and status displays. (It may take a moment to refresh the Status column.)
