Enable / Disable Connections

Spotlight Cloud monitors enabled connections only. The number of connections Spotlight Cloud can monitor simultaneously is dependent on your Spotlight Cloud subscription. Spotlight Cloud Professional holders can monitor up to the number of connections purchased. For a Professional Trial subscription Spotlight Cloud can monitor up to 25 connections; on a Basic subscription Spotlight Cloud can monitor up to 5 connections. When this limit is reached either increase your Spotlight Cloud subscription or disable a connection and so you can enable another connection.


The Connection Discovery Wizard is used to locate SQL Server instances and Windows Servers on the network to monitor as Spotlight connections.

Connection Tags

Tags are a free form organizational tool that may be optionally applied to Spotlight connections. Tag names represent a project, geographic region or other indicator of interest to you and your organization. Multiple tags can be assigned to one connection.

Delete Connections

Delete a connection. The connection will no longer appear in the list of connections monitored by Spotlight Cloud. All configurations and customizations associated with the connection will be deleted with the connection.
