account: XMPP account management

account command help you to create or manage the XMPP account of a server, using In-Band Registration (XEP-0077).

create

Create a XMPP account. You have to specify your jid and password as positional arguments. By default the registration is done on localhost with default XMPP Client 2 Server port (i.e. 5222), but you can specify other host/port using -H HOST, --host HOST and -P PORT, --port PORT. You may also specify an e-mail address using -e EMAIL, --email EMAIL (use of this data depend of the server implementation).

By default, no SàT profile is created and associated to this new XMPP account, but you can use -p PROFILE, --profile PROFILE if you are willing to have one.

example

Create account for the new user Nestor at nestor@example.org and associate it with the SàT profile nestor:

$ jp account create nestor@example.org some_password -p nestor

modify

Modify an existing XMPP account password. This will modify the XMPP account linked to the given profile.

Note

Only the XMPP password on the server is changed, not the one registered in the parameter of SàT. You may have to update the parameter of your profile if the new password doesn’t correspond to your parameters one (you can do that with jp param set or with most SàT frontends in parameters).

example

Change the XMPP password of the XMPP account of the default profile:

$ jp account modify new_password

delete

Delete the XMPP account linked to the given profile from the XMPP server. Before using this command, please be sure to understand well that THIS WILL REMOVE THE WHOLE XMPP ACCOUNT AND DATA FROM THE XMPP SERVER.

By default a confirmation is requested, you can do this without confirmation by using -f, --force, however this is NOT RECOMMENDED, be sure to understand what you’re doing if you use this option (and be sure to spell correctly the profile, if you forget the -p PROFILE, --profile argument for instance, this would delete entirely the default profile).

Note

Be extra careful with this command, as it will remove the whole account from the server, and the associated data.

example

Delete the XMPP account of Pierre, which is not on the local server anymore:

$ jp account delete -p pierre
