Data Quality Dashboard User Credentials


Can someone explain how the user name and password are used in the database connection function of the data quality dashboard process? I need to convince my managers that the software is safe to use as we continue our implementation.

Thank you!

DQD uses the OHDSI R package DatabaseConnector to connect to your database. This article from the DatabaseConnector wiki explains the connection function in more detail: Connecting to a database • DatabaseConnector

DQD connects to your database in order to run the SQL queries it uses to calculate its data quality checks. If you enable the writeToTable parameter, it will also write its data quality check results to your database (in the table specified in writeTableName).

Let me know if that helps! I’d probably need more context on your managers’ concerns to give more specific guidance :slight_smile:
