IDM provides a default schema for typical managed object types, such as users and roles, but does not control the structure of objects that you store in the repository. You can modify or extend the schema for the default object types. You can also create new managed object types for any item that can be collected in a data set. For example, with the right schema, you can set up any device associated with the Internet of Things (IoT).
These topics describe how to work with managed object types. For more information about the IDM object model, see Data Models and Objects Reference.
