sxacl-usernewkey — change (password based) user authentication key

Synopsis

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

Description

sxacl usernewkey generates a new user authentication key based on a password or a random data, which automatically replaces the old one. A normal user can change its own key and a cluster administrator can change a key of any user.

Options

-h, --help
Print help and exit
--full-help
Print help, including hidden options, and exit
-V, --version

-p, --pass-file=PATH
By default sxacl works in interactive mode and asks for the user password on standard input. With this option it will read the password from the provided file.
-a, --auth-file=FILE
Store authentication key in a given file (instead of printing it).
-g, --generate-key
Automatically generate a new key based on a random data instead of a password.
-b, --batch-mode
Disable additional information and only print the automatically generated authentication key.
--force-key=KEY
By default, the new authentication key is automatically generated. With this option one can force the use of an old key. Only a key that was previously generated for the same username will be accepted.
-c, --config-dir=PATH
Path to the SX configuration directory (default: ~/.sx)
-D, --debug
Enable debug messages.

Examples

To change the key of user 'joe' run:
