       sss_useradd - create a new user


       sss_useradd [options] LOGIN


       sss_useradd creates a new user account using the values specified on the command line plus
       the default values from the system.


       -u,--uid UID
           Set the UID of the user to the value of UID. If not given, it is chosen automatically.

       -c,--gecos COMMENT
           Any text string describing the user. Often used as the field for the user's full name.

       -h,--home HOME_DIR
           The home directory of the user account. The default is to append the LOGIN name to
           /home and use that as the home directory. The base that is prepended before LOGIN is
           tunable with “user_defaults/baseDirectory” setting in sssd.conf.

       -s,--shell SHELL
           The user's login shell. The default is currently /bin/bash. The default can be changed
           with “user_defaults/defaultShell” setting in sssd.conf.

       -G,--groups GROUPS
           A list of existing groups this user is also a member of.

           Create the user's home directory if it does not exist. The files and directories
           contained in the skeleton directory (which can be defined with the -k option or in the
           config file) will be copied to the home directory.

           Do not create the user's home directory. Overrides configuration settings.

       -k,--skel SKELDIR
           The skeleton directory, which contains files and directories to be copied in the
           user's home directory, when the home directory is created by sss_useradd.

           Special files (block devices, character devices, named pipes and unix sockets) will
           not be copied.

           This option is only valid if the -m (or --create-home) option is specified, or
           creation of home directories is set to TRUE in the configuration.

       -Z,--selinux-user SELINUX_USER
           The SELinux user for the user's login. If not specified, the system default will be

           Display help message and exit.


       In order to function correctly, a domain with “id_provider=local” must be created and the
       SSSD must be running.

       The administrator might want to use the SSSD local users instead of traditional UNIX users
       in cases where the group nesting (see sss_groupadd(8)) is needed. The local users are also
       useful for testing and development of the SSSD without having to deploy a full remote
       server. The sss_user* and sss_group* tools use a local LDB storage to store users and
