Step 4: Configure permissions to grant SSO access to SolarWinds Cloud users
Grant SSO access to SolarWinds Cloud by assigning permissions to users, groups, or roles.
On the Permissions page, click Add.
Select the user(s), group(s), or role(s) that you want to grant permissions to, then click Add.
The added object appears on the Permissions page with View, Run, and Automatically Deploy permissions selected by default.
