How can a user with a password be created in the server?


#1

I need to be able to create a user in the server directory that can be login to and only is created the fist time the sever starts.


#2

Assuming you have accounts-password added then you can:

Meteor.startup(function(){
  if(!Meteor.users.find().count()){
    Accounts.createUser({
      username: 'Bob123',
      password: '123Bob'
    })
  }
});

#3

Example:

Meteor.startup(() => {
  if (!Meteor.users.findOne({username: 'admin'})) {
    let id = Accounts.createUser({
      username: 'admin',
      email: 'admin',
      password: 'admin'
    })
  }
}

(server/admin-user.es6.js)

EDIT: haha, both of us probably copy-pasting it out of the same one project we’re currently working on :smiley:
