I am trying to create a local (non-AD) account on student laptops using bash and a .csv file. The User and Location field in the JSS is already set to the local user we want to create.
.csv spreadsheet contains rows of usernames and passwords
What we want next is to add a local user account based on the username $3 and have that username referenced in a .csv file. Then have the password in the next field go into a variable which is passed along to the createAccount -password attribute. This would be run either from a policy at check in (preferred) or from Self Service as the local admin user.
We can Create a user Manually in Terminal:
sudo jamf createAccount -username student1 -realname student1 -password newpassword -home /Users/student1 -shell /bin/bash
password= field number 2 in the .csv spreadsheet
#Lookup the username variable in the .csv spreadsheet and set the password in the same row as the password variable.
This is the step I need all the help on.
#Create the account
jamf createAccount -username $3 -realname $3 -password $password -home /Users/$3 -shell /bin/bash
#Delete the password .csv file
sudo rm $file
