Update: SentryOne Document is now SolarWinds Database Mapper (DMR). See the Database Mapper product page to learn more about features and licensing. Want to explore Database Mapper? An interactive demo environment is available without any signup requirements.
After you have successfully installed the Database Mapper remote agent and configured a solution (see the Getting Started article for instructions), you can use Database Mapper to generate documentation. Generate documentation for your solution by completing the following steps:
1. Log into Database Mapper, then select Solutions to open the Solutions dashboard.
2. Select the Configure Snapshot button for the desired solution to open the Snapshot Configuration window. Select the documentation type, and then select Start Snapshot to start your snapshot.
Note: Your Snapshot Request is processed by the remote agent assigned to the solution. The snapshot may take several minutes. View your snapshot progress on the Task History page for the selected solution.
Note: You can cancel a snapshot for a solution that's pending, or in progress on the solution's Task History page. Select Cancel to open the Confirm Workflow Cancellation window, then select Confirm to cancel the snapshot.
Important: The Remote Agent pool assigned to your Solution needs at least one Remote Agent to take a snapshot. If your Remote Agent pool doesn't have an assigned Remote Agent, you are prompted to assign one.
Once your documentation has generated, you can select from the Solutions Dashboard to open the Documentation page and drill down into your solution's metadata.
Note: You can also select the Documentation tab, then select a Solution from the drop-down list to display documentation.
