systemd-homed.service - Man Page

Home Area/User Account Manager





systemd-homed is a system service that may be used to create, remove, change or inspect home areas (directories and network mounts and real or loopback block devices with a filesystem, optionally encrypted).

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

See the Home Directories[1] documentation for details about the format and design of home areas 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[2], and thus may be browsed with userdbctl(1).
