luseradd - Add an user
luseradd [OPTION]... user
Adds an user with name user.
-c, --gecos=gecos Set the SM]GECOS field to gecos. The SM]GECOS field is traditionally used to store users real name and other information.
-d, --directory=directory Set users home directory to directory. If this option is not present, a default specified by libuser configuration is used.
-g, --gid=group Set users primary group to group. group can either be a group ID of an existing group, or a group name; if group is a group name and the group does not exist, it is created. If the --gid option is not specified, the default group name is user.
-i, --interactive Ask all questions when connecting to the user database, even if default answers are set up in libuser configuration.
-k, --skeleton=directory Populate the newly created users home directory with a copy of directory. If this option is not present, a default directory specified by libuser configuration, or /etc/skel if libuser configuration does not specify a default, is used.
-M, --nocreatehome Dont create a home directory and a mail spool for the newly created user.
-n, --nocreategroup If a group is not specified using -g, use group name "users" instead of user. Note that despite the name of the option, the group will still be created if it does not exist.
-P, --plainpassword=password Set users password to password. Note that the password can be viewed while running luseradd using tools such as ps(1).
-p, --password=encrypted Set users password to the password represented by the hash encrypted. Note that the hash can be viewed while running luseradd using tools such as ps(1).
-r, --reserved The user is a system user. Users that are not marked as system user usually have automatically selected user IDs above a certain value (500 by default). This information is also passed to the libuser backends. This option implies the -M option.
-s, --shell=shell Set users login shell to shell. If this option is not present, a default specified by libuser configuration is used.
-u, --uid=uid Use user ID uid for the newly created user. An user ID is selected automatically if this option is not present.
The exit status is 0 on success, nonzero on error.
