Paperless-ng Portainer stack create superuser

When deploying paperless-ng stack with docker-compose file in Portainer you can’t login to paperless admin because superuser for login is missing (not created). You need to create it by going into container webserver CLI console and create it. Check screenshots for details.

python3 manage.py createsuperuser
