Allow a user to be his/her own manager

IBM Security Verify supports the concept of each user having a manager, however it does not allow a user to be his/her own manager. We are requesting that "I'm my own manager" be supported.

    The use case provided is uncommon though we recognize that it is something that you have ran into. We recommend an alternative to solve this use case using attribute rules which can be referenced here. At this time, we do not plan to implement support for this scenario. Thank you for your idea!
