user-password

Automatically generates and configures a password for the specified user account.

If setting the option prompt to true, the user will be prompted to type in their desired password.

Note

This module will set mutableUsers to false, meaning you can not manage user passwords through passwd anymore.

After the system was installed/deployed the following command can be used to display the user-password:

clan secrets get {machine_name}-user-password

To regenerate the password, delete the password files in the clan directory and redeploy the machine.
