Init Admin Example Variables

Latest Changes

January/11/2023: Updated & tested for strapi (v.4.5.5). Added support for NodeJs 18.x.x.

December/11/2022: Allow INIT_ADMIN to be a JSON-String to minimize struggling with multiple environment variables.


Installation

Add strapi-plugin-init-admin-user to your strapi (v4!).

# npm:
npm install strapi-plugin-init-admin-user
# yarn:
yarn add strapi-plugin-init-admin-user

Create these environment variables with your initial values.

1
2
3

5
INIT_ADMIN_USERNAME=admin
INIT_ADMIN_PASSWORD=admin
INIT_ADMIN_FIRSTNAME=Admin
INIT_ADMIN_LASTNAME=Admin
INIT_ADMIN_EMAIL=admin@init-strapi-admin.strapi.io

It is also possible to use INIT_ADMIN as JSON-String instead of the environment variables above.

1
INIT_ADMIN='{"username": "admin", "password": "admin", "firstname": "Admin", "lastname": "Admin", "email": "admin@init-strapi-admin.strapi.io"}'

If you decide to also use this plugin outside of development-mode you also need to add the following environment variable (or use INIT_ADMIN as JSON-String).

1
INIT_ADMIN=true

Usage

After installing the plugin and creating your environment variables start your strapi (locally: npm run develop) and watch out for the info-log:

Created admin (E-Mail: admin@init-strapi-admin.strapi.io, Password: INIT_ADMIN_PASSWORD).

Note: By default the plugin will only create an initial admin-user if there is no existing user in your strapi application!
