About the Oracle Solaris Account Management BUI

The Oracle Solaris Account Management browser user interface (BUI) provides a browser-based account manager which has the same functionality as the useradm application. You can access this BUI using the Oracle Solaris Dashboard. This BUI supports all the functionalities of useradd, usermod, userdel, roleadd, rolemod, passwd, and login commands through its interactive menu. It is included in the system/management/webui/webui-usermgr package.
