The account-control interface

account-control allows managing non-system user accounts on Ubuntu Core systems.

Auto-connect: no

This interface enables the management of the extrausers table in the Name Service Switch (NSS) databases on Ubuntu Core to manage both non-system unprivileged and privileged users and groups.

The interface does not allow the management of users and groups for the system NSS databases in /etc.

Due to the privileged nature of access enabled by this interface, its use is reserved exclusively for “management snaps” from brand stores.

This is a snap interface. See Interface management and Supported interfaces for further details on how interfaces are used.
