Identity Manager User Accounts

A user is anyone who holds an Identity Manager system account. Identity Manager stores a range of data for each user. Collectively, this information forms a user’s Identity Manager identity.

Identity Manager user accounts:

The user account setup process is dynamic. Depending on the role selection you make during account setup, you may provide more or less resource-specific information to create the account. The number and type of resources associated with the assigned role determine how much information is required at account creation.

Administrators are users with additional privileges to manage user accounts, resources, and other Identity Manager system objects and tasks. Identity Manager administrators manage organizations, and are assigned a range of capabilities to apply to objects in each managed organization.
