Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

This article describes how to identify the primary keys in the SolarWinds Orion database.


  • Orion Platform products - all versions


To identify rows that are primary keys in the SolarWinds Orion database, complete the following steps:

  1. Open the database in the SQL Server Management Studio.
  2. Locate and expand the table to see the primary key.
  3. Expand Keys, and double-click PK_<table_name>

The columns and the primary key of the table display on the right, with the primary key at the top. 

In this example, NodeID is the primary key of the dbo.NodesData table.image.png
