User accounts can be added or modified via the
users element, which
supports a list of multiple
user child elements:
<image schemaversion="7.2" name="Leap-15.1_appliance"> <users> <user password="this_is_soo_insecure" home="/home/me" name="me" groups="users" pwdformat="plain" /> <user password="$1$wYJUgpM5$RXMMeASDc035eX.NbYWFl0" home="/root" name="root" groups="root" /> </users> </image>
user element represents a specific user that is added or
modified. The following attributes are mandatory:
name: the UNIX username
password: The password for this user account. It can be provided either in cleartext form (
pwdformat="plain") or in
crypt’ed form (
pwdformat="encrypted"). Plain passwords are discouraged, as everyone with access to the image description would know the password. It is recommended to generate a hash of your password using
$ openssl passwd -1 -salt 'xyz' YOUR_PASSWORD
Additionally, the following optional attributes can be specified:
home: the path to the user’s home directory
groups: A comma separated list of UNIX groups. The first element of the list is used as the user’s primary group. The remaining elements are appended to the user’s supplementary groups. When no groups are assigned then the system’s default primary group will be used.
id: The numeric user id of this account.
pwdformat: The format in which
passwordis provided, either
encrypted(the latter is the default).
