Configuring JUNOS Software User Accounts

User accounts provide one way for users to access the router or switch. For each account, you define the login name for the user and, optionally, information that identifies the user. After you have created an account, the software creates a home directory for the user.

To create user accounts, include the user statement at the [edit system login] hierarchy level:

[edit system login]user username {full-name complete-name;uid uid-value; class class-name; authentication {(encrypted-password "password" | plain-text-password);ssh-rsa "public-key";ssh-dsa "public-key";}}
