Admin Roles

The admin roles control what a user can do in CA IdentityMinder. A system administrator assigns a role to a user; that role defines a set of tasks that the user can perform. Users can perform administrative tasks on user accounts, such as changing a password or updating a job title.

Different users have different levels of access to these tasks. For example, an Employee role could contains tasks that give users the ability to modify their name and address, whereas the Human Resources Manager role contains tasks to modify the user's title and salary.
