NAME

       CREATE USER - define a new database role

SYNOPSIS

       CREATE USER name [ [ WITH ] option [ ... ] ]

       where option can be:

             SUPERUSER | NOSUPERUSER
           | CREATEDB | NOCREATEDB
           | CREATEROLE | NOCREATEROLE
           | CREATEUSER | NOCREATEUSER
           | INHERIT | NOINHERIT
           | LOGIN | NOLOGIN
           | CONNECTION LIMIT connlimit
           | [ ENCRYPTED | UNENCRYPTED ] PASSWORD ’password’
           | VALID UNTIL ’timestamp’
           | IN ROLE rolename [, ...]
           | IN GROUP rolename [, ...]
           | ROLE rolename [, ...]
           | ADMIN rolename [, ...]
           | USER rolename [, ...]
           | SYSID uid

DESCRIPTION

       CREATE USER is now an alias for CREATE ROLE [create_role(7)].  The only
       difference is that when the command is spelled CREATE  USER,  LOGIN  is
       assumed  by  default,  whereas  NOLOGIN  is assumed when the command is
       spelled CREATE ROLE.

COMPATIBILITY

       The CREATE USER statement is a PostgreSQL extension. The  SQL  standard
       leaves the definition of users to the implementation.
