Hey you programmer, okay? Let’s learn how to create an administrative user via the terminal in Magento 2!

Anyone who worked with Magento 1 knows that it was a lot of work and boring to create the user via the administrative area

And in Magento 2 this has been solved, we can create administrative users via the terminal, check out the command:

php bin/magento admin:user:create

Given this command, we need to answer some questions that make reference to user data

Here they are:

  • Admin user: username to login;
  • Admin password: password the user will use to login;
  • Admin email: email the user will use to receive emails such as recovering password;
  • Admin first name: user’s first name;
  • Admin last name: user’s last name;

After that, the user will be created and a success message should be displayed with the following message:

Created Magento administrator user named username

The username is the name you entered earlier

Now just test it by logging into your project’s administrative area.
