How user accounts work
User accounts consist of three types of permissions:
- Basic account permissions
- View assignments
- Application specific settings
Before you begin, consider what tasks the user must perform, what views and menu bars are most suitable, and what type of account to use.
Supported account types:
- Orion individual account
- Windows individual or group account (you can use Active Directory or local domain accounts)
- SAML individual or group account (see Authenticate SolarWinds platform users with SAML v2 )
Users created using default settings can log in to the SolarWinds platform Web Console and see information available in views, resources, and reports. For administration and customization tasks, users need extra rights.
