Grant a loan for a Beaker system


bkr loan-grant [options] <fqdn>


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.



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


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.


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
