Which System User is the Current User Using?

Users log in to the running administration tool using a system ID. Permitted system user IDs are determined by the authentication module you select. When the system user logs in to the One Identity Manager administration tools, the user interface is displayed and editing rights are assigned depending on the permissions groups to which the user belongs.

To identify the current system user for the current user:

  • Double-click the icon in the status bar to display more user information in the program.

    The System user tab shows the following system information:

    System user

    Name of system user

    Dynamic user The current user uses a dynamic system user. Dynamic system users are applied when a role-based authentication module is used to log in.

    The Permissions groups tab lists the permissions groups to which the user belongs.

To identify which permissions are assigned to the current user for an object:
