12.3 Managing User Account in the System
In the Raspberry Pi system, user groups are maintained in "/etc/passwd" file. Internally managed data has the following format.
<User Name>: x:<UserID>: <GroupID>:<User Type>:<Home Directory>:<default bash>
■ User Name
■ User ID
■ User Type
■ Home Directory
■ Default bash
When a specific user account is defined in the system, a User Id number is internally assigned to each user account. In the system internally, this User Id is always used when referring to user accounts.
Next, the following is to create the user accounts "guser001" and "guser002", and then check the contents of the "/etc/passwd" file. You can see that each user account is numbered after it.
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo cat /etc/passwd
guser001:x:1001:1004:General User 001,,,:/home/guser001:/bin/bash
guser002:x:1002:1005:General User 002,,,:/home/guser002:/bin/bash
For example, if you look at the user account "guser001", you can see that an Id of "1001" is given. The number "1001" is the internally managed User ID for this account.
