Passing Login Information Using URL Parameters

The user ID and password can be passed as parameters within the URL. This allows you to create a favorite or bookmark within a browser, or on your desktop. Create a favorite with a link in the following form to pass the login information:

http://DOMAIN/Orion/Login.aspx?AccountID=USER&Password=PASSWORD

Provide the hostname or IP address of your SolarWinds server as the DOMAIN. Provide your SolarWinds User ID as the USER, and then provide your SolarWinds user account password as the  PASSWORD.

Warning: HTTP requests are not encrypted, so User IDs and Passwords sent in HTTP requests are not secure. For more information about enabling HTTPS on your SolarWinds server, consult www.microsoft.com.
