User management

The users in WSO2 Identity Server are the digital representations of the identities of physical users who interact with your organization. With WSO2 Identity Server, the identity lifecycle of each of these users can be easily managed by the admins of the organization.

The admins can grant users access to resources in your organization and control user access. Admins can also manage various user operations via the WSO2 Identity Server Console and SCIM APIs.
