•About User Management
About User Management
When you install the CGDS Monitor, an admin user (administrator) is created by default. The admin user creates other users by adding them to the WSO2 Identity Server Management Console (Management Console) and by assigning the administrative privileges, if necessary. The users can log in to the CGDS Monitor and perform tasks based on the permissions that are assigned.
Apart from creating users, administrators can modify the following user details:
•User password—To reset the user password.
•Role—To assign the administrative privileges to users, or to remove the administrative privileges from them.
•User profile—To change the user details, such as username, email address, contact address, and so on.
In addition, administrators can delete the existing users from the application.
