Issue/Introduction

We are being asked questions by our Internal Audit and ComplianceTeam.

- What is the functional purpose of the "admin" account ?

Cause

We create 2 default users in CAPC:

admin - used to administer the console but also performs administration function internally to CAPC.

user - used as a template for use creation.

Environment

Release : 3.7

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

Both the ‘admin’ user and ‘user’ user are required for CAPC to function properly.

Please do not modify or delete these default user accounts.
