vCloud Automation Center uses identity stores to authenticate users. Each tenant is associated with at least one identity store when it is created, but you can add new ones if necessary.

When you delete an identity store, this removes the roles assigned to users from this store, the roles assigned to users from custom groups, and the information about which services are available to this user. Entries for entitlements and business groups are not affected.
