The User configuration item type lets you enter data about people of your company into the Configuration Management Database (CMDB). The User configuration item type is associated with the Company and the Department configuration item types. You can also specify a manager for a user.
When you use Asset Management Suite for the first time, you do not have to insert user data manually. Symantec recommends that you use Microsoft Active Directory Import to enter all your company's existing users into the CMDB. If the user data that you import also contains department data, you can use it to automatically assign users to the departments. To accomplish this task, you must enter the department data before you import the user data.
