You can try it out from the Manage users section.

User management is a function of the organization that lets users manage digital assets like devices, applications networks, cloud services. The companies are exploring more advanced options. Modern services for managing users offer the complete control of user accounts which includes user registration as well as login and authentication. one-sign-on (SSO) and management of permissions. User management systems enable administrators to manage user’s access to software, devices and services. This includes managing permissions, observing usage, and granting authenticated access. Management of users is an essential element of Identity and Access Management (IAM). Administrators can use user management to:
  • Users of groups based on their requirements and roles
  • Create flexible access policies
  • Securing IT systems
  • Secure against unauthorised access to applications, infrastructure, and information
  • User details and passwords for the storage
  • Offer a user-friendly login option for users who are not end-users
  • Users can change and change passwords
  • Create accounts for users
  • Use social services to authenticate
  • Federation with an Identity Provider
  • Allow users to select several providers
  • Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA)
  • Give user rights to systems, services and applications.
  • Control user entitlements in applications and services
Security can be improved through user management through:
  • Implementing secure authentication methods like multi-factor authentication
  • The careful management of user access to data and resources
Management of users can cut administrative costs through:
  • Reduced costs associated with registration and password issues for customers by 75 percent
  • Saving $30 per user password reset
  • Reduced administrative costs for managing the user’s access, requests and policies by 80percent
The most popular method to manage user access can be identified and access management (IAM). IAM lets administrators define permissions to IT resources that are accessible to both external and internal users. IAM incorporates or works with a directory service for users which stores user credentials as well as other information of the users. The directory service regulates access control by authorizing, authenticating, and auditing access for users. Traditionally, companies managed the management of users and user authentication through identity providers on premises (IdP) like Microsoft Active Directory. On-premise IdP server was responsible for managing user accounts along with authentication and authorization for local networks. In recent times, IAM has moved to the cloud. IAM that is cloud-based IAM is more flexible and scalable it gives administrators greater control, and is designed to ensure secured remote access.
