Copy Local Cacti User

For use and understanding the limitation of this script, it is of importance to read User Management. In case you're using local cacti user definitions, you may copy a template user to a new user. Don't use this script for LDAP or Web Basic users.

Calling the script with the parameter –help yields

shell>php -q copy_user.php --help

It is highly recommended that you use the web interface to copy users as this script will only copy Local Cacti users.

Syntax:
 php copy_cacti_user.php <template user> <new user>

Now let's create a new user Harry Potter as follows

shell>php -q copy_user.php guest "Harry Potter"

It is highly recommended that you use the web interface to copy users as this script will only copy Local Cacti users.
