SolarWinds Site credentials in EOC

Updated: September 12, 2017

To monitor a SolarWinds Site, EOC requires the following credentials:

  • Administrator credentials allow EOC to connect to the site.
  • User credentials determine what data each EOC account can view. These credentials are also used if you enable automatic logins.

Administrator credentials

When you add a SolarWinds site, you must enter the user name and password of an account with administrator privileges on the SolarWinds Site. EOC uses these credentials to connect to the site and collect information.

User credentials

Each EOC user or group account must be associated with the credentials of an account that can access the SolarWinds Site. The privileges granted to this account determine what site data the user or group members can access in EOC.

Use the following options to associate SolarWinds Site user credentials with EOC accounts:

  • Create a default user account for the SolarWinds Site.

    When you add or edit a SolarWinds Site, choose the Specify a default user account option to specify a default user account. This account is used by default for all EOC users with access to the site.

  • Specify custom SolarWinds Site user credentials for an EOC account.

    When you define which SolarWinds Sites a user can access, you can specify the SolarWinds Site user account used to determine what data this EOC user can access.

    Use this option if:

    • You did not establish a default user account for the site.
    • You want to associate this EOC account with an account that has different privileges than the default user account.

If an EOC account has access to a SolarWinds Site but is not associated with a SolarWinds Site user account, the Enterprise Summary view displays an error message and the user cannot access data from that site.
