vertica_user – Adds or removes Vertica database users and assigns roles¶
Adds or removes Vertica database user and, optionally, assigns roles.
A user will not be removed until all the dependencies have been dropped.
In such a situation, if the module tries to remove the user it will fail and only remove roles granted to the user.

The default authentication assumes that you are either logging in as or sudo’ing to the
