Account limitations restrict user access to specific network areas or withhold certain types of information from designated users.

To limit user access, apply a limitation on the user account, and specify the network area the user can access. Depending on the limitation, you can use logical operators and wildcards.

Pattern limitations can have a negative impact on performance and are error prone.

If the default limitations are not enough, you can create limitations based on custom properties, and apply them on user accounts.

  • Group limitations are not applied until after the group availability is calculated.
  • Because SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) initially caches account limitations, it may take up to a minute for account limitations to take effect in SolarWinds NTA.
  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  3. In the User Accounts grouping, click Manage Accounts.
  4. Edit an individual or group account.
    1. Click Add Limitation in the Account Limitations section.
    2. Select the type of limitation to apply, and click Continue.
    3. Define the limitation, and click Submit.

      The limitation will be added to the Edit Account page.

  5. Click Submit.

When the user logs back in, the account respects the limitations applied to it.
