As Granite incorporates the CRX Repository implementation of the JCR API Specification it has its own user and group administration.
These accounts are the underlying basis of the AEM accounts and any account changes made with the Granite administration will be reflected if/when the accounts are accessed from the AEM Users console (e.g. http://localhost:4502/useradmin). From the AEM Users console you can also manage the privileges and other AEM specifics.
Granite user and group administration consoles are both available from the Tools console of the touch-optimized UI:
Choosing either Users or Groups from the Tools console will open the appropriate console. In both you can take action either by using the clickbox and then actions from the toolbar, or by opening the account details via the link under Name.
Here you can enter the user details for the account (most are standard and self-explanatory):
This is the unique identification for the user account. It is mandatory and cannot contain spaces.

A password is mandatory.
- Retype Password
This is mandatory as it is required for confirmation of the password.
- First Name

You can flag the account as either active or inactive.
Here you can upload a photo to use as an avatar.
