A connection profile is a global device login that you apply to one or more devices managed by SolarWinds NCM.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NCM Settings.
  3. Under Global Device Defaults, click Connection Profiles.
  4. To create a new connection profile, click Create New.
  5. To edit an existing profile, select a profile, and click Edit.
  6. Enter the appropriate values. See below for more information on the last option, Automatically Test This Profile Against Monitored Nodes That Allow It:
    • Make this profile available to SolarWinds NCM in communicating with nodes for which no profile is assigned.
    • If you have multiple connection profiles with this setting enabled, SolarWinds NCM cycles through them before performing the desired operation on a node without a specific connection profile applied. SolarWinds NCM permanently assigns the first connection profile that works to the node.
    • Though selecting this setting on your connection profiles helps SolarWinds NCM communicate with devices without assigned profiles, we recommend applying a specific connection profile to each managed node.
  7. Click Submit.
