Create a monitoring user with the correct permissions

Before adding a target CockroachDB instance in the UI you should first create a dbmarlin user in the target database instance.

CREATE user dbmarlin WITH PASSWORD 'securepassword';
GRANT admin TO dbmarlin;

Adding the Database Target

This is done through the User Interface using the Add Database screen
