# ipa help user

Manage user entries. All users are POSIX users.

IPA supports a wide range of username formats, but you need to be aware of any
restrictions that may apply to your particular environment. For example,
usernames that start with a digit or usernames that exceed a certain length
may cause problems for some UNIX systems.
Use 'ipa config-mod' to change the username format allowed by IPA tools.

Disabling a user account prevents that user from obtaining new Kerberos
credentials. It does not invalidate any credentials that have already
been issued.

Password management is not a part of this module. For more information
about this topic please see: ipa help passwd


 Add a new user:
   ipa user-add --first=Tim --last=User --password tuser1

 Find all users whose entries include the string "Tim":
   ipa user-find Tim

 Find all users with "Tim" as the first name:
   ipa user-find --first=Tim

 Disable a user account:
   ipa user-disable tuser1

 Enable a user account:
   ipa user-enable tuser1

 Delete a user:
   ipa user-del tuser1

Topic commands:
  user-add      Add a new user.
  user-del      Delete a user.
  user-disable  Disable a user account.
  user-enable   Enable a user account.
  user-find     Search for users.
  user-mod      Modify a user.
  user-show     Display information about a user.
