saslpasswd2 - Man Page

set a user's sasl password


saslpasswd2 [-p] [-d] [-c] [-n] [-f file] [-u domain] [-a appname] [-v] userid


saslpasswd2 is used by a server administrator to set a user's sasl password for server programs and SASL mechanisms which use the standard libsasl database of user secrets.



Pipe mode - saslpasswd2 will neither prompt for the password nor verify that it was entered correctly.  This is the default when standard input is not a terminal.


Creates an entry for the user if the user doesn't already exist.  This is mutually exclusive with the -d (delete user) flag.


Deletes the entry for the user.  This is mutually exclusive with the -c (create user) flag.


Don't set the plaintext userPassword property for the user.  Only mechanism-specific secrets will be set (e.g. OTP, SCRAM, SRP)

-u domain

use domain for user domain (realm).

-f file

use file for sasldb

-a appname

use appname as application name.


Print libsasl2 version number and exit.
