cells-enterprise admin user token

Generate a personal token for a user



Generate a personal authentication token for a user. Expiration can be set in two ways:
+ A hard limit, by using the -e flag (duration) + A sliding window by using the -a flag (duration): in that case the token expiration will be refreshed each time the token is used (e.g a request using this token is received).


Generate a token that lasts 24 hours for user admin $ ./cells-enterprise admin user token -u admin -e 24h

Generate a token that lasts by default 10mn, but which expiration is refreshed to the next 10mn each time the token is used. $ ./cells-enterprise admin user token -u admin -a 10m


These token can be used in replacement of an OAuth2-based access token: they can replace the "Bearer" access token when calling any REST API. They can also be used as the password (in conjunction with username) for all basic-auth based APIs (e.g. webDAV).


By default, generated tokens grant the same level of access as a standard login operation. To improve security, it is possible to restrict these accesses to a specific file or folder (given it is accessible by the user in first place) with a "scope" in the format "node:NODE_UUID:PERMISSION" where PERMISSION string contains either "r" (read) or "w" (write) or both.
