vIDM is only required for RBAC with NSX-T.  If you want to use AD user accounts to access NSX-T Manager, you'll need vIDM.  Otherwise, you can use the local admin account.

Hello,

vIDM is needed to configure role-based access control for users (AD/LDAP users).

To enable the integration of NSX-T with vIDM, check the following:  Configure VMware Identity Manager Integration

the key word is "required" so technically is not a dependency, so if you want to have RBAC on NSX then you required vIDM.
