kwuser resynchronizes user and group information with an NIS server.
Information about any particular user (and the groups they belong to) is automatically updated when the user logs in to the Klocwork Server through a Klocwork client. A user can log in to the Klocwork Server even if they were added to the NIS server after the last update of Klocwork user information.
Klocwork access control also updates automatically to synchronize with new NIS data when you restart the Klocwork Server.
You can force the Klocwork Server to reload all user and group data with the kwuser or kwuser reload command.
kwuser [--url http(s)://<host>:<port>]
- <host>:<port> is the Klocwork Server host name (default: localhost) and port number (default: 8080)
|--help||-H||display this help and exit|
|--url http(s)://<klocwork_server_host>:<klocwork_server_port>/||URL for the Klocwork Server. Use https:// if a secure Klocwork Server connection has been configured. |
|--verbose||-v||print verbose information about program execution, which can help to troubleshoot errors|
|--version||-V||display version and exit|
Bulk loading user and groups (Basic authentication only)
If you are using basic authentication and have a large number of users and/or groups, you can use the command kwuser load-users or kwuser load-groups to load them all at once.
This command can be used to load users from a text file containing a list of user names. The file encoding should be UTF-8. Each line in the file should have the following format:
user_1;user_1_password user_2; user_3;user_3_password user_4
In the above example, user_2 and user_4 have empty passwords.
After the file has been created, you can use the kwuser load-users to load it. For example:
kwuser load-users C:\path\to\users\file.txt
This command can be used to load groups from a text file containing a list of group names. The file encoding should be UTF-8. Each line in the file should have the following format:
group_a;user_1 group_b;user_1;user_2;user_3 group_c; group_d
In the above example, 'group a' and 'group b' are created with specific users included; 'group c' and 'group d' are created without adding any users to them.
After the file has been created, you can use the kwuser load-groups to load it. For example:
kwuser load-groups C:\path\to\groups\file.txt
