Reports created with SolarWinds Report Writer respect Orion Web Console account limitations. For security, by default, reports are not available to users with limited accounts unless an Orion administrator specifically provides access. The following procedure creates a reports folder for an account-limited user and configures the account-limited user to access Orion Platform reports from it.

For more information about creating user accounts, see Create new accounts. For more information about applying account limitations to user accounts, see Set account limitations.

  1. Open the Orion Platform reports folder.

    All reports created or predefined in SolarWinds Report Writer are, by default, stored, in C:\Program Files\Solarwinds\Orion\Reports.

  2. Create a new folder using the name of the account-limited user.
  3. Copy the reports you want the account-limited user to see from the Orion Platform reports folder into the new, account-limited user folder.
  4. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds > Orion Web Console.
  5. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  6. Click Settings in the top right of the Web Console.
  7. Click Manage Accounts in the Accounts grouping of the Orion Website Administration page.
  8. Select the account-limited user, and then click Edit.
  9. In the Default Menu Bar and Views section, select the Report Folder you created in the Orion Platform reports folder for the account-limited user.
  10. Click Submit.
