    Description

      Puppet Enterprise Version: 2016.4.x
      Puppet Server Version: 2016.4.6
      OS Name/Version: CentOS

      I am working in an environment where users / groups are managed remotely via Samba. I'm trying to use the existing user documentation to manage some users locally but running into issues in understanding the documentation. The libuser "feature" seems relevant to what I want to accomplish but the documentation on this is extremely sparse on the resource reference page: https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/5.5/types/user.html#user-provider-features

      Desired Behavior:

      Improve existing documentation re: "libuser" and any associated requirements / dependencies. A few additional sentences explaining how the library can be used, any limitations, and on which particular Operating Systems it's supported would be extremely useful. This should focus on expanding existing authored docs on user management or creating new docs.
