Details

The register command adds details of a controller to the local system. This is done either by completing the user registration process that began with the ‘juju add-user’ command, or by providing the DNS host name of a public controller.

To complete the user registration process, you should have been provided with a base64-encoded blob of data (the output of ‘juju add-user’) which can be copied and pasted as the <string> argument to ‘register’. You will be prompted for a password, which, once set, causes the registration string to be voided. In order to start using Juju the user can now either add a model or wait for a model to be shared with them. Some machine providers will require the user to be in possession of certain credentials in order to add a model.

If a new controller has been spun up to replace an existing one, and you want to start using that replacement controller instead of the original one, use the --replace option to overwrite any existing controller details based on either a name or UUID match.

When adding a controller at a public address, authentication via some external third party (for example Ubuntu SSO) will be required, usually by using a web browser.
