rpk acl user

Manage SCRAM users.

If SCRAM is enabled, a SCRAM user is what you use to talk to Redpanda, and ACLs control what your user has access to. See rpk acl --help for more information about ACLs, and rpk acl user create --help for more information about creating SCRAM users. Using SCRAM requires setting kafka_enable_authorization: true and authentication_method: sasl in the redpanda section of your redpanda.yaml, and setting sasl_mechanisms with SCRAM for your Redpanda cluster.
