User Administration

Identity Governance deployments usually have identity information distributed across a number of systems. OpenIAM allows you to integrate the systems through the use of connectors. OpenIAM also maintains unified picture of all user identities (aka accounts) across these varied systems.

The User Administration functionality in OpenIAM enables the management of users in both OpenIAM and the connected applications. Each user profile in OpenIAM will have an OpenIAM identity (account) and n accounts mapped to the various systems that the account has been provisioned to.

The Webconsole provides tools for authorized users to administer users. The sections below describe how to perform these operations in detail.
