Create New Mac User Account

New user account (admin or not) on mac


This Agent procedure allows to create a new user on Mac OSX.
When the procedure is scheduled, it will prompt for a Username, Full Name, Password and Admin access (yes/no).
If you enter yes for admin access, keep in mind the changes will not take effect until the endpoint is restarted which is not included in the procedure in order to give you the option to restart at a later time.
If you plan on using the script more than once on a specific endpoint, it is required to change the "UniqueID" on line 8 for a different number.

    Worked brilliantly, just what I needed. I found it is possible to rerun the procedure against an existing user to modify it also, so I made 1 slight modification, which was to add an "Else" after checkadmin to do a -delete and remove admin if "yes" was not supplied
