Trust Summary

This AppInsight for Active Directory widget displays details about domain trust relationships on the Active Directory Application Summary page so you can:

  • Visualize domain-to-domain communications.
  • Determine which domains can access another domain's resources.

For example, if you use SolarWinds AppOptics, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product that allows deep dives into hybrid and cloud-native IT environments, you can configure a one-way Active Directory trust that allows AppOptics to log in to Active Directory resources hosted in a separate domain.
