Synopsis

systemd-homed.service

/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-homed

Description

systemd-homed is a system service that may be used to create, remove, change or inspect home directories.

Most of systemd-homed's functionality is accessible through the homectl(1) command.

See the Home Directories documentation for details about the format and design of home directories managed by systemd-homed.service.

Each home directory managed by systemd-homed.service synthesizes a local user and group. These are made available to the system using the User/Group Record Lookup API via Varlink, and thus may be browsed with userdbctl(1).
