ISSUE:

 

You need to bulk change the password for all users in an entire GroupWise Post Office

 

HOW TO STEPS:

 

Use the following script to change the GroupWise password for all users in an entire Post Office in a GroupWise system. The following script changes the GroupWise password, not the LDAP password of the affected user accounts.

 

#/bin/bash

read -p "Enter GroupWise Admin Service IP/Hostname: " IP
echo " "
read -p "Enter Groupwise Admin Service Port: " PORT
echo " "
read -p "Enter GroupWise System Administrator user name: " GWADMIN
echo " "
read -p "Enter GroupWise Administrator Password: " PWD
echo " "
read -p "Enter Post Office name: " PO
echo " "
read -p "Enter New Password: " NEWPWD
echo " "

#-- build base url for admin service

BASEURL="https://$IP:$PORT/gwadmin-service"

# --- create json data for the new password

DATA="{\"userPassword\":{\"value\":\"$NEWPWD\"}}"

# --- build url to search for the user. the /list/user.csv will return the user data in csv format.
# --- attrs= returns only the users domain,po and gwid, so we can build the url to change the pwd

SEARCHURL="$BASEURL/list/USER.csv?postoffice=$PO&attrs=domain,postoffice,name"

# --- use curl to search the admin service for the user,and gawk to build the proper user url

URLS=`curl -k --user $GWADMIN:$PWD $SEARCHURL |gawk --field-separator=, 'NR!=1 {print"'$BASEURL'/domains/"$1"/postoffices/"$2"/users/"$3"/clientoptions"}'`

# --- now use curl to change the pwd. note content-type cause we are using a json doc

#echo 'curl -k --user '$GWADMIN':'$ADMINPWD' -H "Content-Type:application/json" -X PUT '$url' --data '$DATA'' >> url.txt # for debuging only

curl -k --user $GWADMIN:$PWD -H "Content-Type:application/json" -X PUT $URLS --data $DATA

echo " "
echo "Passwords have been changed"
echo "Please be patient... "
echo "It may take a while for the change to propagate through your GroupWise systems"
echo " "
echo " "
