SNMPv3 Authentication & Privacy/Encryption passwords

We have some nodes in Solarwinds that are using SNMPv3 but I cannot figure out what the Authentication and Privacy/Encryption passwords are since it was set up previous to my access into the tool. I don't have rights to access any of the devices being monitored with SNMPv3 to check and see what those passwords are. Is there a way to see this information within Solarwinds or perhaps the database? I ask because we have more nodes to set up with SNMPv3, but without being able to see what those passwords are, I can't do much.
Thanks for any and all help!

Check the Nodes table of the database. Also, not sure if this still works, but if you edit a node and then view the HTML, credentials are in plain text in the source code (DOH!).

I don't have access into the database, but the source code trick sure worked! Thank you for the help.
