Mattermost, Inc.

Cannot create users with CLI

Hello everyone,
I have a dockerized Mattermost server installed in a container and is working fine. I just wanted to add a few lin commands in my docker-compose file to be able to create the two users I need, instead of having them created manually every time I raise the container.

These are the commands I’m running in my docker-compose:

/mm/mattermost/bin/mattermost user create --email --username myuser --password mypassword
/mm/mattermost/bin/mattermost team create --name myteam --display_name “myteam”
/mm/mattermost/bin/mattermost team add myteam user1 user2

When I try to log in with any of the two users I configured, I get “We couldn’t find an account matching your login credentials.”

I tried executing the commands inside the container to check if the compose was failing. This is what a get when I entered the user creation command:

It seems I cannot reach the DataBase for some reason.

I create the Mattermost container I used

Hello, @ccastmar

I tested this on my end to verify if there is something wrong with the command but it works fine on my end:

System Console

May I know if you can consider reinstalling it again by running the commands below before trying to access the shell again?

docker stop mattermost-preview
docker rm -v mattermost-preview
