Creating a user with API rights only to Orion.Events table


I have some API calls that read and write to Orion.Events table, but for now am using an account with admin rights.

Is there a way to create a user the least privileges, I just need to have read and write rights to only Orion.Events table?

  • I have some custom HTMLs with JS scripts interacting with other systems.

    For logging purposes, I'm inserting records into Orion.Events table, which will be used later to generate a report using the query in #2.

  • That's what I was looking for.  Is it a web page or something that can be "read" by the SolarWinds Platform?  If so, they might be able to use the alerting engine to trigger the event.


    1. If the web page contains the word "down."
    2. Trigger an alert.
    3. Alert Action: Write something to the Event Log.

    Otherwise, I'm afraid you'd going to either need to use an admin account or directly edit the SQL table (which is a very bad idea).
