Special User Attributes

Eucalyptus extends the IAM model by providing the following extra attributes for a user.

  • This is only meaningful for the account administrator (that is, the account level).
  • . Use this attribute to temporarily disable a user.
  • Add any name-value pair to a user’s custom information attribute. This is useful for attaching pure text information, like an address, phone number, or department. You can retrieve and modify the registration status, enabled status, and password expiration date using the euare-usergetattributes and euare-usermod commands. You can retrieve and modify custom information using euare-usergetinfo and euare-userupdateinfo commands.
