Preparing the Oracle Database

You must prepare your new Oracle database for use with Silk Test Workbench. This section describes how to use the Database Maintenance utility to populate the database with Silk Test Workbench tables.

  1. Click (in Microsoft Windows 7) Start > Programs > Silk > Silk Test > Administration > Database Maintenance or (in Microsoft Windows 10) Start > Silk > Database Maintenance. The Database Maintenance utility starts.
  2. Click File > New Database > Oracle. The Oracle Data Source Connection dialog box opens.
  3. Type the name of the new Oracle data source or click Browse and select a data source name from the Select ODBC Data Source dialog box.
  4. In the appropriate boxes, type the name of the Oracle user ID, and password, and then click Create. The Schema box is filled in automatically with the same information as the User ID.

You are now ready to start Silk Test Workbench and log on.
