3. If you need to add a user to login initially, you can configure it in the  user-mgt.xml. As an example we are going to create a user called dominoz with the password password#.








          <EveryOneRoleName>everyone</EveryOneRoleName> <!-- By default users in this role sees the registry root -->

          <Property name="dataSource">jdbc/WSO2CarbonDB</Property>


4. If you need to add  the user “dominoz” under the  wso2.test tree structure, you should configure the following attribute.

<Property name="UserSearchBase">CN=Users,DC=wso2,DC=test</Property>

5. Following is a screenshot of the  Active directory configured with the user “dominoz”.
