  • System Access — interface for managing access to the Console, security policies, and system tenants.

In the top right corner, the interface displays the following elements:

  • User name of the current user. Click it to open the User settings page, which displays your account settings (user name, role, and authentication method). On this page, you can change your password or update your email address.
