  2. Click on "Create User Addon Addon CSV".

  8. Click OK.
  9. To instead create the user via manual input, select Manual input.

The options are configured by the administrator via a script in Identity Manager Admin and can be used by the operator and self-service user.

The script already exists with default values, so you only need to change the values as needed, not create the script.

Option: Set the user's end state
