bkr-loan-grant ā€” Grant a loan for a Beaker system

Synopsis

bkr loan-grant [options] <fqdn>

Description

Grant a loan for a Beaker system.

The designated user will have full permissions to reserve, provision and schedule jobs on that system, even if they would not normally have such access.

While a system is on loan, only the loan recipient and the system owner will have permission to reserve or otherwise use the system.

New in version 0.15.2.

Options

--recipient

Username of the loan recipient (defaults to the user issuing the command)

--comment

Comment regarding the loan (for example, the reason for it)

Common bkr options are described in the Options section of bkr(1).

Exit Status

Non-zero on error, otherwise zero.

Examples

Temporarily grant a user exclusive access to a particular system:

bkr loan-grant --recipient jdoe system1.example.invalid
# jdoe now has almost exclusive access to use the system
bkr loan-return system1.example.invalid
# Either jdoe or a user with permission to loan the system to other users
# can return the granted loan
