Media Flow Controller CLI Commands : username

Configure user accounts and privileges. See “Authentication/Authorization and Users Options” on page 63 for task details.
username <username>
capability <capability>
disable [password]
full-name <name>
password [ 0 <cleartext_password> | 7 <encrypted_password> | <cleartext_password>]
Add or delete (with no) a user account. New users are created initially with admin privileges and you must manually change those privileges, if desired. To enable a user account, just set a password on it (or use the nopassword command to enable it with no password required for login). Removing a user account does not terminate any current sessions that user has open; it just prevents new sessions from being established. Notes:
capability <capability>—Change the capabilities for this user account. Creates the account if it doesn't exist. Use no to revert the specified user to the default capability, which is admin privileges. There are three pre-defined capabilities:
admin—Full privileges (default); in Enable mode all EXEC commands are available.
monitor—Privileges for reading all data and performing all actions, but not for changing any configuration.
ftpuser—Privileged for FTP transactions only; FTP users auto-created with a namespace creation have this capability. See namespace pre-stage for details.
disable—Disable means of logging in to this account. Note that disabling a user account does not terminate any current sessions that user has open; it just prevents new sessions from being established. Optionally, specify a password; this leaves the account as a whole the same, but forbids login with a password; it is assumed that SSH key access is used instead. To re-enable the account, the user must un-disable it, and put a password on it. The no username <userid> disable command prints a message to this effect; it only exists to avoid stumping users with an apparently irreversible command.
full-name—Set or reset to empty string (with no) the full name (referred to in some circles as the "gecos") on this account.
nopassword—Allow login to this account without a password.
password—Set the login password for this user. Enter * (asterisk) to disable login; enter nothing (and confirm) to set no password for a user.
0 <cleartext_password>—Allows the password to be specified in cleartext, whereby the system encrypts it using the DES algorithm. This password shows in the encrypted form with show configuration.
7 <encrypted_password>—Allows the password to be provided in the same encrypted form in which it is stored in the shadow password file (/etc/shadow). Useful for show configuration, since the cleartext password cannot be recovered (in cleartext) after it is set.
<cleartext_password>—Enter a cleartext password; if none is specified, the user is prompted for the password, with entries obscured, requiring the same string to be entered twice for confirmation.
Tip! Use password 7 <encrypted_password> when setting user passwords; in case you ever need to re-apply a saved configuration, the encrypted user passwords are saved (not so for cleartext passwords) and can be re-applied with the saved configuration.
users [history [username <username>]]
usernames—List of all user accounts and the capabilities of each.
users—List of all currently logged-in users, and related information such as idle time and what host they have connected from. Optionally, choose history to view the history of user logins, past and present. You can also optionally specify a username and only the history of that particular user is displayed.
whoami—The username and capabilities of the currently logged-in user.
