Creating users

Creating users in CARTO is simple thanks to the create_dev_user script located in scripts/create_dev_user. To execute this script, be sure to be located at the cartodb repository root directory and simply run:

$ ./script/create_dev_user

You will be prompted to input two parameters:

  • subdomain is the same as the user’s user name. This is what you will enter in the browser to access the user’s dashboard: https://<user_name> Set it to whatever you want the user’s user name to be.
  • password this is the password the new user will use to login into their account.

Upon script completion, the new user will have been created.
