EmpowerID recommends that you create a Person object with theAll AccessManagement Role and use that identity—instead of the EmpowerID Admin—when configuring EmpowerID. The All Access Management Role grants the Person with the role full administrative capabilities in EmpowerID. You create this Person in the EmpowerID Web interface.
Creating this identity requires you to log in to the EmpowerID Web application as the EmpowerID Admin. After authenticating, EmpowerID will require the EmpowerID Admin to enroll for Password Self-Service Reset. After enrolling, you should change the password for the EmpowerID Admin. Once you have completed this, you can then create the All Access Person and then use that identity to configure EmpowerID.
