Creating User Accounts

The User Accounts service is discontinued. The OS Login API is the recommended system for managing SSH access on Compute Engine.

Transition instances that are configured to use User Accounts to OS Login using the following process:

  1. Disable User Accounts: On each instance that is configured to use User Accounts, run the following script to disable user accounts.


    You can also set the above script as a startup script and restart the instance.

  2. Configure your instances to use OS Login.
