Create or delete custom limitations using the Web Account Limitation Builder

The Account Limitation Builder has been migrated to the web and now enables you to create or delete custom limitations.

Create account limitations

Creating account limitations ensures that SolarWinds Platform Web Console users view only the specific network areas that are relevant to their job duties.

You can use account limitations in the following ways:

  • Limit views to specific network nodes
  • Limit views by department or functional area
  • Limit views by device type or device role
  • Limit views based on the geographic location of devices

Predefined account limitations use built-in SolarWinds Platform properties to limit user access. For greater flexibility, you can create your own account limitations in the Account Limitation Builder, based on custom properties.

  1. Go to Settings > All Settings > Manage account limitations.

  2. Click Add.

    Step 2 - Click Add

  3. Enter limitation details, and then click Add.
    Step 3 - Enter limitation details and click Add

Delete account limitations

Deleting a limitation makes it unavailable for future use in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console. If the limitation is applied to user accounts, the accounts will remain limited.

  1. Go to Settings > All Settings > Manage account limitations.

  2. Click the three dots at the right end of the row containing the limitation you want to delete. Select Delete.

    Click three dots and then select Delete
  3. Confirm the deletion.
    Confirm the deletion

The limitation is now unavailable in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console.
