Add Items for Monitoring

Once you completed monitoring plan wizard and specified data sources, add items for monitoring. You can add as many items for a data source as you want. In this case, all items will share settings you specified for this data source.

Each data source has a dedicated item type. Netwrix Auditor automatically suggests item types associated with your data source.

NOTE: To add, modify and remove items, you must be assigned the Global administrator role in the product or the Configurator role on the plan. See Role-Based Access and Delegation for more information.

To add a new item to a data source

  1. Navigate to your plan settings.
  2. Click Add item under the data source.
