Web-based reports are created in the Orion Web Console, and can be restricted to specific users through report limitations. Users may be assigned specific report limitation categories and can only view reports that are in the same report limitation category.

SolarWinds recommends that you duplicate and edit an existing web-based report instead of creating a new one.

You can schedule a report to be generated, emailed, saved, or printed.

  1. Click Reports > All Reports > Manage Reports > Create New Report.
  2. On the Layout Builder panel, click Add Content. You may be prompted to add content as soon as you click Create New Report.
  3. Select the first resource to add to the report and click Select and Continue.

    Some resources require you to choose a specific object to report on. For example, if you want to track how many people use a specific application, you must choose the application when adding the resource.

    The Layout Builder view is displayed with the selected resource added.
