The user management functionality allows you to configure the users that can access your product, and the permissions that determine how each user can work with your system. 

The default user management configuration is as follows:

  • The default H2 database is configured as the User Store that stores all the information on users, roles and permissions.
  • An Admin user and Admin password are configured by default.
  • The default Admin role connected to the Admin user has all permissions granted.

According to the default configuration explained above, you can simply log into the Management Console of the WSO2 Open Banking identity and access management component with the Admin user, and get started right away. 

Follow the links given below to understand how user management works, and for step-by-step instructions on how to change/update the default configuration:
