Managing Users [TypeDB Cluster ONLY]

The ability to manage users and authenticate their access to databases is limited to TypeDB Cluster and is not available in TypeDB.

Currently, only the administrator account (named ‘admin’) can perform user management actions.

In order to manage users, we first need to enter the TypeDB Console. To connect to TypeDB Cluster with TypeDB Console, You’ll need to specify that you’re connecting to TypeDB Cluster and provide a username and password:

./typedb console --cluster=<address> --username=<username> --password

You will be prompted to provide a password.

Then, we can use the following commands to manage users:

Retrieve all users

user list

Create a new user

user create <username>

Delete a user

user delete <username>

Set password of a user

user set-password <username> 

Users can also update their own passwords.

Update password for own user

user update-password
