User management functionality is provided by default in all WSO2 Carbon-based products and is configured in the user-mgt.xml file found in the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/ directory. The following documentation explains how users, roles and permissions can be managed using the management console of WSO2 products.

WSO2 products support the role-based authentication model where privileges of a user are based on the role attached.  Each role is configured with zero or more permissions. Therefore, the set of permissions owned by a user is determined by the roles assigned to that user. If a user has several roles assigned, their permissions are added together.
