User management

This section covers topics related to managing users at the administrative level.

Disabling and re-enabling users

An administrator can sever user communication from a user to the controller they manage by disabling them. The effect is immediate. To get a list of potential users to disable the juju users command can first be used.

Examples:

To disable the user 'mike':

juju disable-user mike

To re-enable the user 'mike':

juju enable-user mike

Disabled users do not show up in the output to juju users unless the '--all' option is used:

Controller: cstack

Name    Display name  Access     Date created    Last connection
admin*  admin         superuser  2016-10-12      just now
mike                  login      17 minutes ago  never connected (disabled)

Changing user passwords

An administrator can change the password of any user associated with the controller they manage. For example:

juju change-user-password john
