I need to create a user from the command line ("splunk add user") and require that user to change their password when they log in. The parameter for this option is not documented.

With a little bit of guessing, I discovered that the parameter is "-force-change-pass true"

A complete example is:

./splunk add user alice -password password123 -role user -email alice@acme.com -full-name "Alice" -force-change-pass true
