The purpose of this document is to provide set up information on the Database Connector integration.


There are other products which may require Outpost24 data to be available in a database for selection. We do not grant access to the internal database used in HIAB because it is subject to restructuring for performance and optimization, and as a security measure.

However, HIAB can be configured to set up a database connector and export findings data to external databases using Events or Report Schedules. Then, you may run your analysis or integrate external products/solutions to the external database.

When connecting to the database, you must have permissions to create tables as well as updating data.
Supported External Databases:

  • MS SQL
  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL

  1. Go to Menu > Settings > Integrations.

    Provide the port number the database connector is using to communicate.

    UsernameProvide the username to authenticate against external database server.
