adds a user to the JAAS realm being edited


jaas:useradd [ --help ] { username } { password }


When editing a JAAS realm, the changes are buffered until the editing session is closed. When you add a new user using the jaas:useradd command, the change is stored in the buffer and does not take effect until the editing session is closed.
The jaas:update command saves the changes and closes the editing session.
The jaas:cancel command clears the buffer without saving the changes and closes the editing session.


Table 11.14, “jaas:useradd Arguments” describes the command's arguments.
