N-central Help

Track the location of mobile devices

You can locate a mobile device within SolarWinds N-central. In the event that a user loses their mobile device, using SolarWinds N-central tracking, you can pinpoint its location. To do this, you need to enable tracking of the device within SolarWinds N-central.

  1. Click ViewsAll Devices and click the Mobile Devices tab.
  2. Select the check box next to the devices that you want to track.
  3. Click Tracking, then Enable.

You will now be able to use the Show Location feature to determine the location of a mobile device.

Mobile device users may disable location tracking directly on the device itself which will prevent SolarWinds N-central from tracking the device even if you enable the feature.
