Orion admin password length and AD

Table of contents

Updated February 13, 2018


This article provides information about the SolarWinds Orion admin account and password.


  • Orion Platform, all versions


The admin account is the default management account in the SolarWinds Orion Platform. The account exists only in the Orion database and does not exists in the Windows OS. That is why it cannot be integrated and used in AD authentication. However, you can use the admin account alongside Windows AD accounts with appropriate privileges.

The maximum length for the admin password is 200 characters.
