Users with Engineer or administrator role in NCM Settings and Node Management Rights cannot  run remediation scripts.

Users with Orion administrator rights are able to  run the remediation scripts.

Clicking on "Execute Remediation Script on this node" throws error below.




OrionWeb.log shows error below.

All NCM versions


This issue happens when  “Only NCM admin can modify compliance policy reports” is enabled. Enabling this setting does not allow to execute remediation script for users without Orion administrator rights.


  1. On the Web Console, click Setting > NCM Settings > Security.
  2. Disable "Only NCM admin can modify compliance policy reports".
  3. Click Submit.
