NAME

       upsd.users - Administrative user definitions for NUT upsd

DESCRIPTION

       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
       /etc/passwd.

       Here are some examples to get you started:

           [admin]
                   password = mypass
                   actions = set
                   instcmds = all

           [pfy]
                   password = duh
                   instcmds = test.panel.start
                   instcmds = test.panel.stop

           [monmaster]
                   password = blah
                   upsmon master

           [monslave]
                   password = abcd
                   upsmon slave

FIELDS

       password
           Set the password for this user.

       actions
           Allow the user to do certain things with upsd. Valid actions are:

           SET
               change the value of certain variables in the UPS

           FSD
               set the forced shutdown flag in the UPS. This is equivalent to an "on battery +
               low battery" situation for the purposes of monitoring.

               The list of actions is expected to grow in the future.

       instcmds
           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.

       upsmon
           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.
