Delegated user administration enables you to distribute user administration between several administrators so that each administrator is responsible for a particular set of users. For example, you can designate one user administrator for each business area in your company (Ex: Sales, Marketing, Finance, etc). Each user administrator can only create, modify, and delete users in the business area that he or she is responsible for
