Before you begin, consider what tasks the user must perform, and what views and menu bars are most suitable.

Users created using default settings can log in to the Orion Web Console and see information available in views, resources, and reports. For administration and customization tasks, users need extra rights.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console, and click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Click Manage Accounts in the User Accounts grouping, and click Add New Account on the Individual Accounts tab.

  4. Provide the account credentials, and click Next.
  5. On Define Settings, provide rights so that the user can perform assigned tasks, select default views and menu bars, and then click Submit.

The user account is listed in the Individual Accounts tab.

Create users based on existing Active Directory or local domain accounts

Users can use their existing Active Directory credentials to log in to the Orion Web Console, so you do not need to manage an extra user account.

  • You must enable Windows Account Login in the Orion Web Console.
    1. Click Settings > All Settings, and in Product Specific Settings, click Web Console Settings.
    2. In Windows Account Login, select Enable automatic login, and click Submit.
  • To maintain administrative privileges, individual and group Windows user accounts must be defined in the same domain as the SolarWinds server they can access.
  • Only Security AD groups are supported. Distribution Groups are not supported.
  1. Log in to Orion Web Console, and click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Click Manage Accounts in the User Accounts grouping, and click Add New Account.
  3. Select Windows individual account or Windows group account, and click Next.

  4. Provide the credentials for an account with administrative access to the Active Directory or local domain, and click Next.
  5. If a system account is available, you can use it. Select Use [Account Name] account to access Active Directory or Local Domain, and click Test Active Directory.

    You may need to specify the credentials manually.

  6. To specify the credentials manually, select Specify credentials to access the Active Directory or Local Domain, and provide the credentials.
  7. Search for the Active Directory or local domain account.

    To search for all users or groups in the domain, enter domain name\* and click Search.

  8. Select the appropriate users in the Add Users area, and click Next.
  9. On Define Settings, provide rights so that the user can perform assigned tasks, select default views and menu bars, and then click Submit.

Users can now log in to the Orion Web Console using their local domain or Active Directory credentials.

If you use Active Directory, users can also automatically login with their Windows credentials.
