Overview

The Orion web configuration is changed in NPM 11.5 as a security measure to prevent Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) and Clickjacking attacks.  As a result, displaying resources on Orion in an a custom web page is not possible.  

Environment

  • NPM 11.5  
  • Orion Platform 2015.1.x

The following was added to the web config as a security measure.

 

X-Same-Domain: 1
X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff
X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN
X-XSS-Protection: 1; mode=block

Resolution

Warnings:

  • Consult your System Administrator before performing the following procedure. 
  • The following changes will make the Orion Web Console vulnerable to Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) and Click-jacking attacks.
  • SolarWinds strongly recommends that you only edit the web.cfg file as instructed. Any additional modifications may result in system performance issues or may create an error state.
  • Save a copy of the original web.cfg file to your local drive as a backup file, in case you need to roll back later.

 

  1. Go to the web folder. By default, it is located at C:\inetpub\SolarWinds.
  2. Open the web.cfg file for editing.
  3. Delete the following key from the file: <add name="X-Frame-Options" value="SAMEORIGIN" />
