The CREATE.USER command creates a new user name in the register of users for security checks.

 

 

Format

 

CREATE.USER  {username  {account}}

 

where

 

usernameis the name of the user to be created. User names may be up to 32 character in length. On Windows systems the name is case insensitive. If omitted, a prompt is displayed for the user name.

 

accountis the name of the account to be entered when this user logs in except QMClient processes. If not specified, an account name prompt will be issued when the user logs in. By default, the forced account also does not apply to phantoms but this can be altered using ADMIN.USER.

 

The new user will not have administrator rights and all options controlling user rights will be disabled. See the ADMIN.USER command for a more powerful method of managing user names.

 

On Windows USB and in user mode installations on Linux/Unix, the new QM user is created with no password. Either the PASSWORD command should be used to apply a password or the user should be encouraged to set a password on first login.

 

This command does not affect the underlying operating system user name database. If QM's security system is enabled (see the SECURITY command), users attempting to enter QM who do not appear in the user register will be rejected.
