Enable and grant access to Report Manager

To use Report Manager at the SO level, you need to grant access to Report Manager during the installation of Report Manager. After installation, access to Report Manager is automatic when adding a new Service Organization.

  1. Login to SolarWinds N-central as a Product Administrator.
  2. Click Administration > Service Organizations.
  3. Click the name of each Service Organization.
  4. Click the Options tab and click to select Allow access to Report Manager.
  5. Click Save.

Grant access to Report Manager

Grant access to users within an Service Organization. Your ability to grant access is dependent upon your account permissions within SolarWinds N-central.

Note that there are only three accounts that are capable of accessing the Admin Console (gear icon) of Report Manager:

  • The default System Account (productadmin@n-able.com), which retains access even if the login email and account details are modified,
  • The default Admin account configured on install,
  • The default Support Account for SolarWinds N-central support, which will only have access if Report Manager is externally available and the support account is enabled.

Report Manager does not support site-level users whose roles have permissions to access Report Manager.

  1. Click Administration > Report Manager > Access Permissions.
  2. Enable access you require from the Available list box and move the item(s) to the Selected list box.
  3. Click Save.

You can configure Report Manager when you access the Administration Console through SolarWinds N-central. For complete configuration instructions, see the Report Manager online help.
