Issue/Introduction

There are default users and roles are available in IAM Portal. Requirement is to delete these users and roles.

Environment

Release : 10.6

Component : DevTest Identity Access Manager

Resolution

We do not encourage any modifications and deletions for default users and roles as they are used internally for license and metrics reporting purposes and other product functionalities.

However, if it is a business critical security requirement then we would suggest below changes to default users and role:

- Change default passwords for all default users.
- If it is must, then remove default users except "admin" and "vscuser" (make very strong passwords)
- Keep ALL default roles (DO NOT delete them)
