    analyze - Analyze a database by the given connection.

    analyze [-c] string  [[-u] string]  [[-pwd] string]  [[-o] string]  [-a] string  [[-d] string]  [-e]  [[-s] string]  

    -c or --jdbc-url  string
        The jdbc connection url, with no extra parameters, to use to connect to the database.

    -u or --user  string
        The user to use while connecting to the database. It is recommended to provide a user with read-only permissions.
        [Optional, default = <none>]

    -o or --output  string

    -a or --application  string
        The Application node to create that will be the parent of all objects found in the scan.
        The value is a comma separated list of 'Application' semantic names.
        Semantic names may be anything you wish if creating a new application.
        If linking grouping to an existing application, the semantic name is its 'identity' minus the 'grouping:' prefix.
        Identities for items may be found in the 'Item Details' page of the CodeLogic UI.

    -d or --database  string

    -s or --scan-space-name  string
        The name of the scan space that the data will be saved to.
        If specified, a ScanSpace with this name will be created if not found.
