gerrit set-account - Change an account’s settings.
ssh -p <port> <host> gerrit set-account [--full-name <FULLNAME>] [--active|--inactive] [--add-email <EMAIL>] [--delete-email <EMAIL> | ALL] [--preferred-email <EMAIL>] [--add-ssh-key - | <KEY>] [--delete-ssh-key - | <KEY> | ALL] [--generate-http-password] [--http-password <PASSWORD>] [--clear-http-password] <USER>
Modifies a given user’s settings. This command can be useful to deactivate an account, set HTTP password, add/delete ssh keys without going through the UI.
It also allows managing email addresses, which bypasses the verification step we force within the UI.
Users can call this to update their own accounts. To update a different account, a caller must be a member of the privileged 'Administrators' group, or have been granted the 'Modify Account' global capability. For security reasons only the members of the privileged 'Administrators' group can add or delete SSH keys for a user.
To set the HTTP password for the user account (option --http-password) or to clear the HTTP password (option --clear-http-password) caller must be a member of the privileged 'Administrators' group.
This command is intended to be used in scripts.
Required; Full name, email-address, SSH username or account id.
Set the display name for the user account.
Names containing spaces should be quoted in single quotes ('). This most likely requires double quoting the value, for example
--full-name "'A description string'".
Set the account state to be active.
Set the account state to be inactive. This prevents the user from logging in.
Add another email to the user’s account. This doesn’t trigger the mail validation and adds the email directly to the user’s account. May be supplied more than once to add multiple emails to an account in a single command execution.
Delete an email from this user’s account if it exists. If the email provided is 'ALL', all associated emails are deleted from this account. May be supplied more than once to remove multiple emails from an account in a single command execution.
Sets the preferred email address for the user’s account. The email address must already have been registered with the user’s account before it can be set. May be supplied with the delete-email option as long as the emails are not the same.
Content of the public SSH key to add to the account’s keyring. If
-the key is read from stdin, rather than from the command line. May be supplied more than once to add multiple SSH keys in a single command execution.
Content of the public SSH key to remove from the account’s keyring or the comment associated with this key. If
-the key is read from stdin, rather than from the command line. If the key provided is 'ALL', all associated SSH keys are removed from this account. May be supplied more than once to delete multiple SSH keys in a single command execution.
Generate a new random HTTP password for the user account similar to the web ui. The password will be output to the user on success with a line:
New password: <PASSWORD>.
Set the HTTP password for the user account.
Clear the HTTP password for the user account.
Add an email and SSH key to `watcher’s account:
$ cat ~/.ssh/id_watcher.pub | ssh -p 29418 review.example.com gerrit set-account --add-ssh-key - --add-email firstname.lastname@example.org watcher
