If using encrypted passwords (default) then need to add users using the password manager in https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=default&section=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=swatswat or with the command line smbpasswd. New users are added with the -a option of the smbpasswd command. You may also need to set the encrypted password option in /etc/samba/smb.cnf:
