CREATE USER username PASSWORD ‘password‘;

CREATE USER username PASSWORD ‘password‘ CREATEDB;

CREATE USER username PASSWORD ‘password‘ CREATEDB CREATEUSER;

CREATE USER username PASSWORD ‘password‘ IN GROUP groupname;

CREATE USER username PASSWORD ‘password‘ VALID UNTIL ‘2021-12-31‘;

8 to 64 characters in length.

Create user username password ‘md5######’; (where ###### is the md5 hash string obtained from the previous step)

User will be able to login using username/password combination.
