Answer

No, it is not possible to create an SNMPv3 user via ONTAP 9's command line interface non-interactively.

To create an SNMPv3 user in ONTAP 9, the credentials and arguments must be provided interactively:

Cluster::> security login create -user-or-group-name ExampleName -role role  -application snmp -authentication-method usm
Enter the authoritative entity's EngineID [local EngineID]: <Input Required>
Which authentication protocol do you want to choose (none, md5, sha, sha2-256) [none]: <Input Required>
Enter the authentication protocol password (minimum 8 characters long): <Input Required>
Enter the authentication protocol password again: <Input Required>
Which privacy protocol do you want to choose (none, des, aes128) [none]: <Input Required>
Enter privacy protocol password (minimum 8 characters long): <Input Required>

Enter privacy protocol password again: <Input Required>
