Local service user

This section covers how to grant and allow access to services to a local service user.

A local service user is maintained at the local service-user configuration level under resources service-users.

Authentication for a local service user is gained by using a username and password. The password in the CLI is provided as a plain-text password or as an encrypted SHA-512 hash. A plain-text password is stored as an SHA-512 hash after the configuration is committed.
