Manage Orion Web Console user accounts

Users need an Orion Web Console account to perform actions in your SolarWinds product, such as acknowledging alerts. Default account views and privileges are assigned in the account manager.

You may not need to grant all users accounts if they only need to review reports or access views. See Share views with non-Orion Web Console users for more information.

Add users individually, add group accounts, or use Active Directory accounts.  If a user is in multiple group accounts, the permissions of the group highest on the Groups tab of the Account Manager are applied to the user. By default SolarWinds uses MSAPI to authenticate Active Directory users, but you can authenticate users with LDAP.

To prevent issues with accounts, make sure that your SQL Server disables the no count connection option.
