Managing account profiles and identity attributes

The topics in this section describe how to create user and group profiles that grant access to Centrify‑managed Linux and UNIX computers and how to manage identity attributes using Access Manager. No matter what type of zone your environment uses—classic, hierarchical, or auto zone—you can use Access Manager to create and maintain profiles for Active Directory users and groups.

If your environment uses hierarchical zones, you can also use Access Manager to create and maintain profiles for local Linux and UNIX users and groups.

For Active Directory users and groups, you can also perform the tasks described here using ADEdit or Windows PowerShell commands and scripts or other tools, such as Active Directory Users and Computers.

For local users and groups, you can also perform the tasks described here using adedit and other command line utilities. See Using Centrify commands for administrative tasks for details about using commands to configure local users and groups.
