Default User Console

When you create an environment, CA Identity Manager creates a default User Console that you use to manage the environment. The User Console includes a set of default tasks and admin roles.

The tasks that you see when you log into CA Identity Manager environment depend on your admin roles. In the following example, the user Jane Green has the User Manager role. She sees categories for the admin tasks that are available for User Managers.
