       acledit - Manage Torrus access control lists (ACLs).


       torrus acledit [options...]


       This command manages the Torrus access control lists. Each user is
       identified by user ID, and has a set of attributes. Currently supported
       attributes are "cn" (common name) and "userPasswordMD5" (MD5 digest of
       the user’s password).

       Each user belongs to one or several groups. Each group has its own set
       of privileges. A privilege is identified by privilege name and object
       name. Currently only one privilege name is supported: "DisplayTree",
       and the object name is the name of the tree that this group is allowed
       to browse.

       User authorization in the web interface is controlled by the
       $Torrus::ApacheHandler::authorizeUsers variable in

           must be the name of the tree for which the "DisplayTree" and
           "DisplayAdmInfo" privilegs are granted or revoked. The asterisk (*)
           instead of the object name assigns the privilege for all objects.

         torrus acledit --addgroup=staff --permit=DisplayTree \
           --for=main --for=thecustomer
         torrus acledit --adduser=jsmith --password=mysecretpassword \
           --cn="John Smith" --addtogroup=staff
         torrus acledit --addgroup=admin --permit=DisplayTree --for='*'

       This example creates a group staff and gives all its members the
       permission to browse the datasource trees main and thecustomer. The
       next command creates a user jsmith and addts it to this group. The user
       name will be displayed as John Smith, and it will be let in with the
       given password. The third command creates a group admin which is
       allowed o browse all existing trees.
