NAME


doveadm-acl - Manage Access Control List (ACL)

SYNOPSIS


doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] acl command [OPTIONS] [ARGUMENTS]

DESCRIPTION


The doveadm acl COMMANDS can be used to execute various Access Control List related
actions.

OPTIONS


Global doveadm(1) options:

-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.

-f formatter
Specifies the formatter for formatting the output. Supported formatters are:

flow prints each line with key=value pairs.

pager prints each key: value pair on its own line and separates records with form
feed character (^L).

tab prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.

table prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

-o setting=value
Overrides the configuration setting from /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and from the
userdb with the given value. In order to override multiple settings, the -o option
may be specified multiple times.

-v Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

This command uses by default the output formatter table.

Command specific options:

-A If the -A option is present, the command will be performed for all users. Using
this option in combination with system users from userdb { driver = passwd } is not
recommended, because it contains also users with a lower UID than the one
configured with the first_valid_uid setting.

When the SQL userdb module is used make sure that the iterate_query setting in
/etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf.ext matches your database layout. When using the
LDAP userdb module, make sure that the iterate_attrs and iterate_filter settings in
/etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext match your LDAP schema. Otherwise doveadm(1)
will be unable to iterate over all users.

-F file
Execute the command for all the users in the file. This is similar to the -A
option, but instead of getting the list of users from the userdb, they are read
from the given file. The file contains one username per line.

-S socket_path
The option's argument is either an absolute path to a local UNIX domain socket, or
a hostname and port (hostname:port), in order to connect a remote host via a TCP
socket.

This allows an administrator to execute doveadm(1) mail commands through the given
socket.

-u user/mask
Run the command only for the given user. It's also possible to use '*' and '?'
wildcards (e.g. -u *@example.org).
When neither the -A option, nor the -F file option, nor the -u user was specified,
the command will be executed with the environment of the currently logged in user.

ARGUMENTS


id The id (identifier) is one of:

* group-override=group_name

* user=user_name

* owner

* group=group_name

* authenticated

* anyone (or anonymous, which is an alias for anyone)

The ACLs are processed in the precedence given above, so for example if you have
given read-access to a group, you can still remove that from specific users inside
the group.
Group-override identifier allows you to override users' ACLs. Probably the most
useful reason to do this is to temporarily disable access for some users. For
example:

user=timo rw
group-override=tempdisabled

Now if timo is a member of the tempdisabled group, he has no access to the mailbox.
This wouldn't be possible with a normal group identifier, because the user=timo
would override it.

mailbox
The name of the mailbox, for which the ACL manipulation should be done. It's also
possible to use the wildcard characters "*" and/or "?" in the mailbox name.

right Dovecot ACL right name. This isn't the same as the IMAP ACL letters, which aren't
currently supported. Here is a mapping of the IMAP ACL letters to Dovecot ACL
names:

l lookup
Mailbox is visible in mailbox list. Mailbox can be subscribed to.

r read
Mailbox can be opened for reading.

w write
Message flags and keywords can be changed, except \Seen and \Deleted.

s write-seen
\Seen flag can be changed.

t write-deleted
\Deleted flag can be changed.

i insert
Messages can be written or copied to the mailbox.

p post
Messages can be posted to the mailbox by dovecot-lda, e.g. from Sieve
scripts.

e expunge
Messages can be expunged.

k create
Mailboxes can be created/renamed directly under this mailbox (but not
necessarily under its children, see ACL Inheritance in the wiki).
Note: Renaming also requires the delete right.

x delete
Mailbox can be deleted.

a admin
Administration rights to the mailbox (currently: ability to change ACLs
for mailbox).

COMMANDS


acl add
doveadm acl add [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] mailbox id right [right ...]

Add ACL rights to the mailbox/id. If the id already exists, the existing rights are
preserved.

acl debug
doveadm acl debug [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] mailbox

This command can be used to debug why a shared mailbox isn't accessible to the user. It
will list exactly what the problem is.

acl delete
doveadm acl delete [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] mailbox id

Remove the whole ACL entry for the mailbox/id.

acl get
doveadm acl get [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] [-m] mailbox

Show all the ACLs for the mailbox.

acl recalc
doveadm acl recalc [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path]

Make sure the user's shared mailboxes exist correctly in the acl_shared_dict.

acl remove
doveadm acl remove [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] mailbox id right [right ...]

Remove the specified ACL rights from the mailbox/id. If all rights are removed, the entry
still exists without any rights.

acl rights
doveadm acl rights [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] mailbox

Show the user's current ACL rights for the mailbox.

acl set
doveadm acl set [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] mailbox id right [right ...]

Set ACL rights to the mailbox/id. If the id already exists, the existing rights are
replaced.
