User Management with Cockpit
This screen allows a variety of tasks to be performed including locking or unlocking the account, changing the password or forcing the user to configure a new password. If the Server Administrator option is selected, the user will be added to the wheel group and permitted to use sudo to perform administrative tasks. A button is also provided to delete the user from the system.
If the user will be accessing the system remotely using an SSH connection with key encryption, the user’s public key may be added within this screen. SSH access and authentication will be covered later in [[Configuring SSH Key-based Authentication on RHEL 8|Configuring SSH Key-based Authentication on RHEL8]].
