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.
