voms-proxy-list - Man Page

Shows a list of all available attributes from a specified server


voms-proxy-list [options]


The voms-proxy-list prints on screen a list of all available attributes from a specified proxy server.


Options may be specified indifferently with either a "-" or "--" prefix. The options from -help to -out are present for compatibility with grid-proxy-init, and have the exact same meaning. The meaning of the other ones is the following.

Displays usage
Displays version
Enables extra debug output
Quiet mode, minimal output
Verifies certificate to make proxy for
Allows passphrase from stdin
-cert certfile
Non-standard location of user certificate
-key keyfile
Non-standard location of user key
-certdir certdir
Non standard location where the trusted CAs certificates are kept.
-out proxyfile
Location of new proxy cert
-voms voms
Specifies the VOMS server to contact using the nickname voms.

Example : voms-proxy-list --voms myVO

-conf file
Read options from file.

-confile file

-userconf file

-vomses file
Specifies the name of a configuration file from which a list of nicknames is read. The format of the file is the following: nick host port subject vo Where nick is the nickname, host and port are the hostname and port of the server to contact, subject is the subject of the server's certificate, while vo is the name of the VO that owns the server. The default filenames are $PREFIX/etc/vomses and $HOME/.glite/vomses.

Moreover, permissions must be 644 if a file is specified, and 755 if a directory is specified

The three options are synonyms. -confile and -userconf are deprecated. -vomses should be used instead.

-globus version
This option is obsolete and only present for backwards compatibility with old installations. Currently, its value is ignored.
Use existing proxy to contact the server and to sing the new proxy.
Ignore all warnings. They are not shown to the user.
Warnings become failures. The program will translates all warnings into errors and will react accordingly, by returning a failure itself.
Instead of producing an attribute certificate, this optin will print on screen a list of all attributes available to the user. This is a no-op
