There are four ways to communicate with the SMS using the management APIs:

  1. Typing API commands from a dialog inside the SmartConsole GUI application.
  2. Typing API commands using the "mgmt_cli" executable (available in both Windows, Linux/Gaia flavors).
  3. Typing API commands using Gaia's secure shell (clish).
  4. Sending API commands over an https connection using web-services

See https://sc1.checkpoint.com/documents/latest/APIs/index.html?#introduction~v1.7%20

For defining users see here: https://sc1.checkpoint.com/documents/latest/APIs/index.html?#cli/add-user~v1.7%20

You can run python on SMS as explained here: https://community.checkpoint.com/t5/API-CLI-Discussion/Checkpoint-Python-SDK/m-p/96533
