[--update | --updateAdd]
DESCRIPTIONThis WebGUI utility script reads user information from a text file and loads them into the specified WebGUI database. Default user parameters can be specified through command line options, taking overriding values from the file.
This utility is designed to be run as a superuser on Linux systems, since it needs to be able to put files into WebGUI's data directories and change ownership of files. If you want to run this utility without superuser privileges, use the --override option described below.
The user information is given in a simple TAB-delimited text file, that describes both the field names and field data for each user. You can change de actual delimiter with the --delimiter option (see below).
The first line of the file contains the field names whose values are going to be loaded. From then on, all non-blank lines in the file must have the same number of fields. All-blank lines are ignored. The valid field names are:
- Any valid User Profile field name available in WebGUI's database, e.g. firstName, lastName, email, etc.
If you use the field groups, each following line should contain a comma separated list of WebGUI Group Ids; note that this could be a problem if you chose to use comma as a delimiter for fields.
If no username is specified it will default to firstName.lastName. If no username is specified, nor firstName and lastName, then the user will not be loaded.
If you specify the userId field for import on any record, that userId will be used instead of generating a new one automatically. If you do this, be careful not to insert duplicates!
If you use an invalid field name, its values will be ignored.
- --configFile config.conf
- The WebGUI config file to use. Only the file name needs to be specified, since it will be looked up inside WebGUI's configuration directory. This parameter is required.
- --usersFile pathname
- Pathname to the file containing users information for bulk loading.
- --authMethod method
- Specify the default authentication method to set for each loaded user. It can be overridden in the import file for specific users. If left unspecified, it defaults to WebGUI.
- Set loaded users to be able to change their passwords. If left unspecified, loaded users will NOT be able to change their passwords until and administrator grants them the privilege.
- --delimiter string
- Specify the string delimiting fields in the import file. If left unspecified, it defaults to a single TAB (ASCII 9).
- --expireOffset integer
- Specify the default amount of time before the loaded user will be expired from the groups they are added to. The units are specified by --expireUnits (see below). It can be overridden in the import file for specific users. If left unspecified, it defaults to the expire offset set in the group definition within WebGUI.
- --expireUnits unidades
- Specify the units for --expireOffset (see above). Valid values are seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, epoch, or fixed. If set to epoch the system will assume that the expire offset should be taken as an epoch date (absolute number of seconds since January 1, 1970) rather than an interval. If set to fixed the system will assume that the --expireOffset is a fixed date. If left unspecified, it defaults to seconds.
- --groups groupid,...
Specify a comma separated list of WebGUI Group Ids that each loaded
user will be set to. It can be overridden in the import file for
You can specify a unique expiration date for a group by adding it after the group ID, separated by a colon. The date/time should be in ``YYYY-MM-DD HH:NN:SS'' format.
groupId:2000-01-01 01:00:00,groupId2:2001-01-02 02:00:00
- --ldapUrl uri
- Specify the URI used to connect to the LDAP server for authentication. The URI must conform to what Net::LDAP uses for connecting. It can be overridden in the import file for specific users.
- --password string =item --identifier string
- Specify the default password to use for loaded users. It can (and should) be overridden in the import file for specific users. If left unspecified, it defaults to 123qwe.
- --status status
- Specify the default account status for loaded users. Valid values are Active and Deactivated. If left unspecified, it defaults to Active.
- Search WebGUI's database for each user listed in the import file, and update its information using the provided fields. Users in the import file that are not found in the database are ignored. See --updateAdd below if you want to add the extra users.
- Search WebGUI's database for each user listed in the import file, and update its information using the provided fields. Users in the import file that are not found in the database are added. See --update above if you do not want to add the extra users.
- If the user being updated with --update or --updateAdd already belongs to some other groups, remove the user from them.
- This flag will allow you to run this utility without being the super user, but note that it may not work as intended.
- Disable all output unless there's an error.
- Shows this documentation, then exits.
