The User Management module in WSO2 products enable role-based access. With this functionality, the permissions enabled for a particular role determines what that user can do using the management console of a WSO2 product. Permissions can be granted to a role at two levels:


You will be able to log in to the management console of the product with the Admin user defined in the user-mgt.xml file. You can then create new users and roles and configure permissions for the roles using the management console. However, note that you cannot modify the permissions of the Admin role. The possibility of managing users, roles and permissions is granted by the User Management permission. See the documentation on configuring the user realm for more informationFor more information, see Configuring the User Realm.
