Parameters
  • user_name (str) –

  • groups (Optional[Sequence[str]]) – A list of group names. The user will be added to each group in the list. Default: the user is not associated with any groups.

  • home_dir (Optional[str]) – The user’s home directory. Default: assigned by the OS

  • user_id (Union[int, float, None]) – A user ID. The creation process fails if the user name exists with a different user ID. If the user ID is already assigned to an existing user the operating system may reject the creation request. Default: assigned by the OS
