We received a request to grant Full Admin rights to the SolarWinds IPAM application for two internal accounts in my firm. These two accounts would be used for SolarWinds API calls to do the following:
create, list, and delete subnets within supernet in Solarwinds IPAM via API call to the application
Unfortunately, I do not know anything about the SolarWinds APIs, so I do not know how to do this -- nor if Full Admin rights are truly needed to perform the actions listed above. I read the Orion SDK documentation but I still do not understand.
Bottom line, I very much would appreciate guidance concerning the rights issue and how to go about it. Thanks!!!
Permissions for the API are not managed separately from other permissions - if you have the right to do it through the UI, then you have the right to do it through the API.
The roles for IPAM are described here: Roles and privileges - SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC. Help and Support
I'm not an IPAM expert, but I think you need the "Power User" role to perform the operations you list. It is possible that "Operator" is sufficient - not 100% clear to me from those descriptions.
