upsd.users - Administrative user definitions for NUT upsd
Administrative commands such as setting variables and the instant
commands are powerful, and access to them needs to be restricted. This
file defines who may access them, and what is available.
Each user gets its own section. The fields in that section set the
parameters associated with that user's privileges. The section begins
with the name of the user in brackets, and continues until the next
user name in brackets or EOF. These users are independent of
Here are some examples to get you started:
password = mypass
actions = set
instcmds = all
password = duh
instcmds = test.panel.start
instcmds = test.panel.stop
password = blah
password = abcd
Set the password for this user.
Allow the user to do certain things with upsd. Valid actions are:
change the value of certain variables in the UPS
set the forced shutdown flag in the UPS. This is equivalent to
an "on battery + low battery" situation for the purposes of
The list of actions is expected to grow in the future.
Let a user initiate specific instant commands. Use "ALL" to grant
all commands automatically. To specify multiple commands, use
multiple instances of the instcmds field. For the full list of what
your UPS supports, use "upscmd -l".
The cmdvartab file supplied with the distribution contains a list
of most of the known command names.
Add the necessary actions for a upsmon process to work. This is
either set to "master" or "slave".
Do not attempt to assign actions to upsmon by hand, as you may miss
something important. This method of designating a "upsmon user" was
created so internal capabilities could be changed later on without
breaking existing installations.
