  • Session Timeout is the amount of time (in minutes) the Orion Web Console waits through user inactivity before the user is logged out.
  • Windows Account Login is where you can select whether or not you want to enable automatic login with Windows Active Directory credentials. By enabling this feature, in the future, the current user will be automatically logged-in.
  • Page Refresh specifies the amount of time that passes before a Web Console page, or view, reloads automatically.
  • Site Logo URL is the local path to the banner graphic that appears at the top of every Web Console page. For more information about changing the banner to display your logo, see Change the Web Console site logo
  • Site Login Text is optional text displayed on the Orion Web Console login page. The text entered here is seen by all Web Console users when they log in. HTML tags are allowed.
  • Help Server is the URL of the server where online help for SolarWinds products is stored. The default location is If you are in an Internet-restricted network environment but require access to online help, download the entire online help, copy it to a web server, and then change the Help Server URL to that of the web server. You can download the online help from here.
  • Status Rollup Mode establishes the way the availability status of a collection of nodes on the node tree or on a map is displayed in the Web Console.

    There are two options for the case when there are nodes of differing statuses in a selected group:

    • Mixed Status shows Warning, the default status, ensures the status of a node group displays the worst warning-type state in the group. If none of the group members have a warning-typed state but the group contains both up and down nodes, a Mixed Availability warning state is displayed for the whole group. For example, Critical + Down = Critical, Critical + Warning = Critical, and Up + Down = Mixed Availability.
    • Show Worst Status ensures the worst state in a node group is displayed for the whole group. For example, Up + Down = Down and Unreachable + Shutdown = Shutdown.
  • Child Status Rollup Mode indicates how the status of any single node on the node tree or on a map is displayed. You can show the status of the node and its children, node status and interfaces, if you have SolarWinds NPM installed, or just node ICMP status.

    Select Show Worst Status to ensure that the worst status of the node group is displayed for the whole group (e.g. red if any of the nodes are down). Select Show Worst Status (Interfaces only) to ensure that the worst status of any of the interfaces on a selected node is displayed. Select Show only ICMP Status to only display up/down status for monitored interfaces.

  • Child Status Display Mode designates how the status of the children of any single node on the node tree or on a map is displayed. You can show the status of the node and any of its children with either a static of a blinking icon. By default, the software uses a static icon to display the status of child objects.
