N-central Help

Add a link to the My Links area

Add a link to the My Links area in the navigation pane in SolarWinds N-central.

You can use the links as a way to share content with other technicians by making the links public. Public links created at the customer level appear in the My Links menus of all accounts within the Service Organization, and can be edited by any account.

Use the private option to save a set of links for your own use. Private links appear only in your My Links menu. Private links are viewed and edited only by the account that created them.

When adding a link to the My Links menu, Internet Explorer may experience issues if the link uses a different protocol than the SolarWinds N-central server. For example, if the link uses HTTP and the SolarWinds N-central server is using HTTPS, the link may be blocked. To resolve this issue, make the SolarWinds N-central server a trusted site in Internet Explorer.
