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.

Create users based on existing Active Directory or local domain accounts

    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.

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