8.9 Creating Users

To use tinderd scheduling via the web you must first create a User:

# cd ${pb}/scripts && ./tc addUser -u {USER} -e {EMAIL} -p {PASSWORD} -w

Where {USER} is a username, {EMAIL} is the user's email address, and {PASSWORD} is the user's password for Tinderbox web access.

If you want to enable web access for a previously created user, you must update that user's account to give them a password as well as web access:

# cd ${pb}/scripts && ./tc updateUser -u {USER} -e {EMAIL} -p {PASSWORD} -w

Where {USER} is a username, {EMAIL} is the user's email address, and {PASSWORD} is the user's password for Tinderbox web access.

Then you have to define one web administrator who has full rights on all Builds and is the only account that can add other users:

# cd ${pb}/scripts && ./tc setWwwAdmin -u {USER}

Where {USER} is the web administrator's username.

After that, just browse to your Tinderbox web site with your web browser and login with {USER} and {PASSWORD}. You can now create and modify other users easily by using the Add User or Modify User links.
