Hide Databases from Appinsight in SAM for SQL 'All Databases' Resource

Updated: November 1, 2017


This article discusses a workaround to Hide Databases from the Appinsight for SQL 'All Databases' Resource


  • SAM 6.2+


Step 1: 

  1. Log into the web console.
  2. Navigate to the Appinsight for SQL Details page for your SQL instance.
  3. In the URL of the browser, the last couple of digits refers to the ApplicationID.

Example: http://Solarwinds/Orion/APM/SqlBlack...NetObject=ABSA:168

  1. Take note of this applicationID.


Step 2:

  1. Log into your SolarWinds server
  2. Open database manager
  3. Click Add Default Server
  4. Expand the Orion Database
  5. Locate the table 'APM_SqlBbDatabase'
  6. Run the following query:
SELECT TOP 1000 * FROM [dbo].[APM_SqlBbDatabase] where applicationId = 168
  1. Please update the ApplicationID to match your Application ID which you gathered from Step 1.
  2. Click Enable table editing above the Query text box.
  3. Uncheck the box in the column 'visible' to hide the database from this view. 


  1. Click 'Enable table editing' again once you're done un-checking all of the Databases which you do not want to appear on the Appinsight for SQL Details Page.​​​​​​​
