I need my SolarWinds Orion installation to use secure cookies.


The following procedure secures cookies used by your SolarWinds Orion installation by configuring your web console to require SSL connections for all cookies.
Note: Completing the Configuration Wizard after completing the following procedure will revert all changes. 

To configure the web console to require SSL for all cookies:

  1. Log on as an administrator to your primary SolarWinds Orion server.
  2. Open the file web.config in a text editor.
    Note: By default, web.config is located in C:\inetpub\SolarWinds.
  3. Insert the following lines:
    <httpCookies requireSSL="true" />
      <forms requireSSL="true">
  4. Save web.config.

This article applies to all SolarWinds Orion installations.
