Add user, role management to the BUC tool for users who are administrators

Allow a BUC authorized user with admin privelages to manage OMS users directly in BUC. BUC users should be able to see users by enterprise, team, group or role. Actions allowed should be to delete a user, create a user, or update a user's information (including team, groups, roles).

This should not interfere with LDAP integration via IDM or SAML, but if the user password is maintained in OMS then this should give a business admin user the ability to manage the password as well (change, unlock).

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

The ability to manage user ids in OMS is currently very limited: Either use the cumbersome java based App Manager client, or use an API. For business users, these choices are both very technical options.

This will allow a business user or security administrator to manage user access in OMS.

    Thanks for the clarification Jud. As noted in my previous comment, Application Manager configuration is on the roadmap for migration to Order Hub, so OMS user management will be a consideration at that time.

    Not delivered -- adding a user to Order Hub does not add the user to Order Management. Please read the request again.

    User management is available in Order Hub under Settings > User roles. Current actions are add, delete, and manage role assignment. Additional user management capabilities may be added as configuration is migrated away from the Application Console.
