This article will show how to add an user account with the role or type of superadmin. The process for adding that type of user will be using a certain command. Just access the command line interface, then type the following command :

python manage.py createsuperuser --username=username --email=email

If the above command pattern execution is in the execution form using the real example, the output of the command execution will exist as follows :

(myenv) C:\python-win\system>python manage.py createsuperuser --username=admin --email=admin@localhost
Password:
Password (again):
This password is too common.
Bypass password validation and create user anyway? [y/N]: y
Superuser created successfully.

(myenv) C:\python-win\system>

The above command execution is a success. It means, the command execution for creating a new user with the role of ‘superadmin’ is a success. Just specify the name and the email of the new user. In the above command execution, the username is ‘admin’ and the email is ‘admin@localhost’ as an example.
