How to edit ALE GUI users from the CLI

Aruba Employee

In ALE, to add a new GUI user or edit an existing one, use the htpasswd.py script, like this:

# /opt/ale/bin/htpasswd.py -b /opt/ale/html/.htpasswd <username> <password>

Example:

 # /opt/ale/bin/htpasswd.py -b /opt/ale/html/.htpasswd joemontana PassW0rd

If your password uses special characters, you should escape them with a backslash.  For example, if you want joemontana to have a password of "dollar$bang!", use this syntax:

 # /opt/ale/bin/htpasswd.py -b /opt/ale/html/.htpasswd joemontana dollar\$bang\!
