Currently the createsuperuser management command logic differs when running in non-interactive mode (--no-input option) and in interactive mode (the default).

Here's a summary of what it does currently.

In interactive mode:

  • checks if stdin is a TTY (obviously),
  • checks if provided user already exists (before creating it),
  • provides "fake_user_data" for the case where User model has FKs to other models,
  • validates provided password.

In non-interactive mode:

  • cleans every required field and a USERNAME_FIELD (fix for interactive mode is already in #28016),
  • doesn't allow to provide password (there's #27801 for this case - I already did some work on that ticket).

I think it would be good to combine the logic for both modes before tackling #27801. That would also make #28016 obsolete.
