sxacl-userclone — clone an existing user


sxacl userclone [Options] <username> <clonename> sx://[profile@]cluster


sxacl userclone creates a clone of an existing user, which has the same type and privileges but a different authentication key. The clones can be used to access the same account from different devices to eliminate the need of changing the keys on all of them, in case one gets lost or compromised.


-h, --help
Print help and exit
Print help, including hidden options, and exit
-V, --version
Print version and exit
-a, --auth-file=FILE
Store authentication key in a given file (instead of printing it).
-b, --batch-mode
Disable additional information and only print the authentication key.
By default, the authentication key is automatically generated for the clone. With this option one can force the use of an old key (obtained with sxacl-usergetkey(1)), when recreating the clone on a new or another cluster. Only a key that was previously generated for the same clonename will be accepted.
-c, --config-dir=PATH
Path to the SX configuration directory (default: ~/.sx)
-D, --debug
Enable debug messages.


To create a clone of the user 'joe' run:
sxacl userclone joe joe.mobile sx://admin@cluster
