Using Report Limitation Categories for SAM

Updated: 12-1-2016

Use report limitation categories to limit access to any SolarWinds report created on SolarWinds Orion Platform versions 2013.1 and later. Users with a report limitation category set can only see reports that are in the same report limitation category.

The No Reports limitation is a special report limitation category that removes all access to reports when applied to a user account. You do not need to add No Reports as a limitation in the report properties.

  • If you are running SolarWinds Orion Platform versions 2012.2.X or earlier, reports are stored in a folder on the primary SolarWinds server (default location C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Orion\Reports). Place reports into subfolders and restrict user access to the file system to limit user access.
  • If you are running SolarWinds Orion Platform version 2013.1.X or later, reports are stored in the SolarWinds database, and both users and reports may be assigned a report limitation category to restrict who can access the report.

Create or add a report limitation category

When you create or edit a report, expand Report Limitation on the Properties page to add a report limitation. Choose an existing limitation or enter a new one.

Each report can have only one limitation.

After the report limitation is created and the report saved, the limitation is available in the user settings.

Restrict user access to the report

After the report limitation is saved, it is available in the user account's Define Settings page.

In the Report Limitation Category, select the limitation, and save your changes.
