changes made under workspace are not saved/applied untill you commit the changes, which means if you are creating a user in workspace mode, it is as good as not creating a user until you commit the changes.
To use workspace mode:
Start workspace mode:
execute config-transaction start
Once in workspace mode, the administrator can make configuration changes, all of which are made in a local CLI process that is not viewable by other processes.
Commit configuration changes:
execute config-transaction commit
After performing the commit, the changes are available for all other processes, and are also made in the kernel.
