The following define each user setting in the Patch Manager web console.

Account Enabled

Enables the user to log into the Patch Manager web console. Select Yes or No.

Account Expires

Specifies the date after which the user cannot log into the Patch Manager web console. Enter or select an expiry date, or enter Never if the account should not expire.

Disable Session Timeout

Allows the user to stay logged into the Patch Manager web console indefinitely. Select Yes or No.

Allow Administrator Rights

Allows the user to add or edit other user accounts and reset passwords. Select Yes or No.

Allow Node Management Rights

Allows the user to manage Orion nodes. In Orion web consoles with only the Patch Manager module, this setting is irrelevant. If applicable, select Yes or No.

Allow Account to Customize Views

Allows the user to customize the views they see when they log into the Patch Manager web console. When a user customizes a view, the changes are global. That is, all users with the same view see the changes. Select Yes or No.

Allow Account to Clear Events, Acknowledge Alerts and Syslogs

Allows the user to clear and acknowledge Orion-generated events, alerts, and syslogs in the web console. In Orion web consoles with only the Patch Manager module, this setting is negligible. If applicable, select Yes or No.

Allow Browser Integration

Allows the user to use client browser tools with information provided in the web console. Select Yes or No.

Alert Sound

Enables audible alerts in the Orion web console. In Orion web consoles with only the Patch Manager module, this setting is negligible. If applicable, select a .wav file to use for alerts. The web console populates this list from the folder, %SystemDrive%\Inetpub\SolarWinds\NetPerfMon\Sounds.

Number of items in the breadcrumb list

Specifies the number of items the web console displays in the breadcrumb drop-down lists. If set to 0, the web console displays all items. Enter the number of items to display.

Account Limitations

Specifies the network devices the user can view. For example, limit the user to see only devices in a single location. In Orion web consoles with only the Patch Manager module, this setting is irrelevant. Refer to the Administrator Guide for your Orion Platform product for additional information.

HomeTab Menu Bar

Specifies the menu bar the user sees on the Home tab. Select the menu bar from the list. For additional information about menu bars, see "Customizing Menu Bars".

PatchesTab Menu Bar

Specifies the menu bar the user sees on the Home tab. Select the menu bar from the list. For additional information about menu bars, see "Customizing Menu Bars".

Tabs ordering

Specifies the order of the tabs in the Patch Manager web console. Use the directional arrows to move tabs up or down in the list. The Patch Manager web console displays the tab at the top of the list on the far left of the tab row.

Home Page View

Specifies the view the user sees immediately upon logging into the Patch Manager web console. Select the home page from the list. For additional information about views, see "Creating and Managing Views".

Default Network Device

Specifies the network device the user sees on the corresponding details page upon logging into the Patch Manager web console. This setting only applies if the user's home page is set to a details page, such as WSUS Server Details or WSUS Node Details. Click Edit to specify the default network device.

Default Summary View

Specifies the view associated with the Summary link on the default Home menu bar. The Patch Manager web console also displays this view when the user clicks the Home tab. Select a view from the list.

Report Folder

Specifies the folder from which the Orion web console pulls reports for the selected user. To assign a specific set of reports to a user, create a sub-folder in the Reports folder, and then put the specific reports in that folder. Select the user's folder for this setting. The default location of the Reports folder is %PROGRAMFILES%\SolarWinds\Orion\Reports.
