How to Create a Custom Admin Task

An admin task is an administrative function that a user can perform in CA IdentityMinder. Examples of admin tasks include Create User, Modify Group, and View Role Membership.

CA IdentityMinder includes default admin tasks that you can modify to suit your business needs.

When you create a custom admin task, you complete the following steps:

Note: The section Active Directory Prerequisites includes additional considerations if CA IdentityMinder is managing an Active Directory user store.

  1. In the CA IdentityMinder User Console, select Roles and Tasks, Admin Tasks, Create Admin Task.

    CA IdentityMinder asks if you want to create a new task or create a task based on an existing task.

    For example, select the Modify User task as the basis of the new task.

  2. Select Create a Copy of an Existing Task, and search for the task to copy.

    Note: We recommend modifying the copy of a default task, instead of modifying the default task directly.

  3. Once you select Ok, you see a screen with the following six tabs:
