You can log in automatically to the Orion Web Console using any of the following methods.

Use a Windows Active Directory Account

Create users based on active directory or local domain accounts, and enable automatic login for users logged in to the server. See Create users based on existing Active Directory or local domain accounts.

Windows authentication must be enabled in the Configuration Wizard and the Web Console Settings. See Enable Windows Authentication with Active Directory.

Automatically log in with Windows Pass-through Security

Users can be authenticated through Windows Security, with no need to log in with separate credentials. For more information, see Log in with Windows pass-through security.

Share content to non-SolarWinds users with the DirectLink account

If the DirectLink account is active, any URL referring directly to an Orion Web Console page will bypass the login page by logging the user into the DirectLink account. See Share views with non-Orion Web Console users.

Pass-through user credentials in a URL

See Automatically login by passing your credentials through the URL.

SAML v2 Single Sign-on login: Active Directory Federated Services (AD FS) or Okta

Starting with Orion Platform 2018.4, you can use existing Okta or AD FS credentials to log in to the Orion Web Console. See Authenticate users with SAML v2.

 

Users are authenticated in the following priority:

  1. Windows Active Directory Authentication when enabled
  2. The Account or User ID and Password passed on the URL
  3. The Account or User ID and Password entered on the login.aspx page
  4. The Windows User if Pass-through Security is enabled
  5. The Windows Domain to which the User belongs, for example, Development\Everyone
  6. A DirectLink Account
