       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
                   actions = fsd
                   instcmds = all

                   password = duh
                   instcmds = test.panel.start
                   instcmds = test.panel.stop

                   password = blah
                   upsmon master

                   password = abcd
                   upsmon slave


           Set the password for this user.

           Allow the user to do certain things with upsd. To specify multiple actions, use
           multiple instances of the actions field. 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 monitoring.

       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.
