    ​Hello @Pranesh Rajendran,

    You are correct.

    To collect MySQL logs into QRadar, create a Universal DSM log source and choose the JDBC protocol as you have done.

    If MySQL does not appear as an option under Database Type,  you have to do the following :

    Hope this helps,

    in addition to what Pascal mentioned correctly, you may want to create your own DSM type to process all your Mysql event data, categorize them and assign QIDs. DSM editor you are probably already aware of. This will extend your list of logsource types with your own one for Mysql. is a good starting point but there are many more entries in security learning academy.
    In case you already know, this is for other readers looking for a solution.

    I need to see  tables record in Qradar Log activity . Qradar Log source status is success and last event is N/A . 

    Database - LOGDB
    Tables - student_table 

    Fields - Personal ID, First name, Last name 

    For testing having only two record 

    On creating log source :
          In Select  List - * (all), Not sure what value need to be update in Compare Field. 
    Please let me know, how to pull the tables record . 

    Tested : Using Java program I able to connect the database server successfully .
