CloudPortal Business Manager provides a special account type called SYSTEM. The System account type represents the Service Provider and root user and can be customized in an installation. In addition, CloudPortal Business Manager offers the following three default account types:
As a service provider, you need not use these default account types. You can create custom account types that suit your business requirements, during the CloudPortal Business Manager implementation.
CloudPortal Business Manager assigns default parameter values to accounts that you create. You can edit the default account type parameter values for account types that you have defined. The System account type properties are view-only and cannot be edited.
