Manage credentials for SAM component monitors

When working with component monitor credentials, note the following details:

  • An Orion account with administrator rights is required.

    SolarWinds recommends using HTTPS to configure credentials. Alternatively, configure them locally on the Orion server.

  • For Windows credentials that access information through WMI, use the following syntaxes:

    • DomainOrComputerName\user name for domain-level authentication, or
    • User Name for workgroup-level authentication.

Add credentials to the Credentials Library

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Credentials Library > Add New Credential.
  2. Provide a Credential Name for the set, which will appear in the Orion Web Console.
  3. Enter a User Name and Password.
  4. Confirm the Password and click Submit.

Edit credentials in the Credentials Library

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Credentials Library.
  2. Click Edit for the desired credential.
  3. Modify the information as needed and then click Submit.
