AEM as a Cloud Service is the cloud-native way of leveraging the AEM applications, and as such, leverages Adobe IMS (Identity Management System) to facilitate the log in of its users, both administrators and regular users, to AEM Author service.
Learn how Adobe IMS users, groups and product profiles are used in concert with AEM groups and permissions to provide fine-grained access to AEM Author service.
Users accessing AEM Author service should be organized into logical groups using Adobe IMS user groups in Adobe’s AdminConsole. Adobe IMS user groups do not provide direct permissions or access to AEM (this is the job of Adobe IMS product profiles), however, they are a great way to define logical groupings of users that can in turn be translated to specific levels of access in AEM Author service, using AEM groups and permissions.
Adobe Experience Manager builds on Adobe IMS users, user groups, and product profiles in order to provide users customizable access to AEM. Learn how to construct AEM groups and permissions and how they work in concert with Adobe IMS abstractions to provide seamless and customizable access to AEM.
An abridged walkthough configuring Adobe IMS users, user groups and product profiles in Adobe AdminConsole, and how to leverage these Adobe IMS abstractions in AEM Author to define and manage specific group based permissions.
The following documentation cover Adobe Admin Console-specific details and concerns that may help in a better understanding of the Adobe Admin Console and using it to manage users and access across Experience Cloud products.
