createcontext

createcontext is the tool to create new contexts. A context is an independent instance within the createcontext Open-Xchange system and holds users, groups and resources and all their objects. Data from one context is not visible to other contexts. Module access (calendar, tasks, email) can be set via predefined "access combination names". These names can be configured on the server side. All users which are created during later use of the "createuser" tool will inherit the module access rights from the context. If you do not specify any access rights on createcontext minimal access rights will be granted. Currently, these are Webmail and Contacts access rights.

Parameters

-h,--help Prints a help text
--environment Show info about commandline environment
--nonl Remove all newlines (\n) from output
--responsetimeout <integer> response timeout in seconds for reading response from the backend (default 0s; infinite) Available with v7.8.0
-c,--contextid <integer> The id of the context, when starting with 0, 0 is deleted
-q,--quota <integer> Context wide filestore quota in MB. -1 = unlimited. Note: The context-associated filestore is not only used by Infostore/Drive module, but also for other features like snippets/signatures, thumbnail cache, PIM (contacts, calendar & tasks) attachments, etc. Thus even if you don't use the Infostore/Drive, you should always set an appropriate amount so users can e.g. store signatures or attach files to PIM items.
-u,--username <string> Username for the new context admin user
-d,--displayname <string> Displayname for the new context admin user
-g,--givenname <string> Given name for the new context admin user
-s,--surname <string> Surname/last name for the new context Admin user
-p,--password <string> Password for the new context Admin user
-e,--email <string> Primary E-Mail address for the new context Admin user
-l,--lang <lang> Language for the new context Admin user
-t,--timezone <timezone> Timezone for the new context Amin user
-N,--contextname <string> Context name
-L,--addmapping <string> Add login mappings separated by ","
-F,--destination-store-id <integer> Specifies the optional file store identifier to which the context gets assigned; if missing the file store gets auto-detected
-D,--destination-database-id <integer> Specifies the optional database identifier to which the context gets assigned; if missing the database gets auto-detected
--access-combination-name <access-combination-name> Access combination name
--access-denied-portal <on/off> Denies portal access (Default is off)
--csv-import <CSV file> Full path to CSV file with user data to import. This option makes mandatory options obsolete, except credential options (if needed).

--csv-import <CSV file>

Full path to CSV file with user data to import. This option makes mandatory command line options obsolete, except credential options (if needed). But they have to be set in the CSV file.

With this option you can specify a csv file (a full pathname must be given) with the data which should be imported. The columnnames in the CSV file must be the same as the long-options of the command line tools, without the prefix "--".

This option will normally be used to fill new large installations with the new data. So instead of calling the command line tools in a shell script every time, just a csv file needs to be created, containing the whole data.

Note that the credentials of the masteradmin in the createcontext call must be given on the command line with the -A and -P options nevertheless - if authentication is enabled. If the createuser command line tool is used, the credentials are part of the csv file, and cannot be set as options on the command line itself. The reason for this different behavior is that different contexts have different credentials for the admin user, so they must be set in every line of the csv file. Opposed to this the credentials of the masteradmin are always the same.

changecontext

changecontext makes context-wide changes.

If you specify module access options; e.g. "--access-edit-password on"; then please be aware that basic module access set is the one from context's administrator. Meaning any option not explicitly specified as CLI argument will fall-back to context administrator setting for _every_ user in associated context.

You can use changecontext to change the current quota for a given context. When the context has more changecontext space in use than the new quota allows, the customer is only able to delete files until the usage is below quota. Module access (calendar,tasks,email) can be set via predefined "access combination names". These names can be configured on the server side. All users which are created during later use of the "createuser" tool will inherit the module access rights from the context. If you do not specify any access rights on createcontext minimal access rights will be granted. Currently, these are Webmail and Contacts access rights.

There are some default combinations in the ModuleAccessDefinitions.properties file on the admin server, like:

webmail=webmail, contacts, globaladdressbookdisabled, collectemailaddresses, editpassword
pim=webmail, calendar, contacts, tasks, globaladdressbookdisabled, collectemailaddresses, multiplemailaccounts, subscription, publication, editpassword
pim_infostore=webmail, calendar, contacts, tasks, infostore, webdav, globaladdressbookdisabled, collectemailaddresses, multiplemailaccounts, subscription, publication
pim_mobility=webmail, calendar, contacts, tasks, syncml, usm, activesync, globaladdressbookdisabled, collectemailaddresses, multiplemailaccounts, subscription, publication, editpassword
groupware_standard=webmail, calendar, contacts, infostore, tasks, webdav, ical, vcard, readcreatesharedfolders, delegatetask, editpublicfolders, editgroup, editresource, editpassword, collectemailaddresses, multiplemailaccounts, subscription, publication (Groupware Standard always gets new features except mobility and OXtender. )
groupware_premium=webmail, calendar, contacts, infostore, tasks, webdav, webdavxml, ical, vcard, syncml, usm, olox20, activesync, readcreatesharedfolders, delegatetask, editpublicfolders, editgroup, editresource, editpassword, collectemailaddresses, multiplemailaccounts, subscription, publication
all=webmail, calendar, contacts, infostore, tasks, webdav, webdavxml, ical, vcard, syncml, usm, olox20, activesync, readcreatesharedfolders, delegatetask, editpublicfolders, editgroup, editresource, editpassword, publicfoldereditable, collectemailaddresses, multiplemailaccounts, subscription, publication (This is a right tailored to a context administrator)

Note: Italics denote additional rights in comparison to the previous set where applicable.

When having changed the access rights of the context and its users with "changecontext" the "downgrade" command should be called on the admin server. All unnecessary data are removed from the data base via "groupware api". If e. g. the context 1 is changed from "pim_infostore" to "webmail", the "downgrade" command has to be called for this context then. Then, all unnecessary folders for this context are removed from the data base.

--capabilities-to-remove <capabilities-to-remove> The capabilities to remove as a comma-separated string (from 7.2.0 on)
--capabilities-to-drop <capabilities-to-drop> The capabilities to drop; e.g. cleanse from storage; as a comma-separated string (from 7.6.0 on)
--quota-module <quota-module> The identifier of the module to which to apply the quota value (from 7.2.0 on)
