User Module

Creating users on DIGIT post installation


This doc provides the steps to create and add users on the DIGIT platform post-installation.

Steps To Create Users

  • Run the kubectl port-forwarding of the egov-user service from the Kubernetes cluster to your local host. This gives you access to egov-user service, bypassing Zuul auth, and you can now interact with the User API directly.

kubectl port-forward svc/egov-user 8080:8080 -n egov

You will see below text in the Terminal:

Forwarding from -> 8080 Forwarding from [::1]:8080 -> 8080

  • Ensure you have installed the Postman utility to run the following scripts. If not, Install postman on your local machine. Import the collection into Postman. Create an environment variable for โ€œtenantIdโ€ and set its value to your tenant.

  • The collection creates four types of users and also provides a way to refresh the auth token:

    1. Super User

    2. System User

    3. Citizen

    4. Anonymous User

  • Run all the scripts in order.

The refresh auth token script logs into the server and refreshes the token. A sample script is provided for the employee user. Similar scripts can be copied for the citizen/super user etc..for convenience.
