Changes the user name of the SYSUAF record (and, if specified, the corresponding identifier) while retaining the characteristics of the old record.
RENAME oldusername newusername
The RENAME command renames a SYSUAF record. It changes the user name of the SYSUAF record (and, if specified, the corresponding identifier) while retaining the characteristics of the old record. Retention of these characteristics can be particularly helpful when a user's name changes.
UAF> RENAME HAWKES KRAMERDOVE/PASSWORD=MARANNKRA %UAF-I-PRACREN, proxies to HAWKES renamed %UAF-I-RENMSG, user record renamed %UAF-I-RDBMDFYMSG, identifier HAWKES modified
The command in this example changes the name of the account Hawkes to Kramerdove, modifies the user name identifier for the account, and renames all proxies to the account.
UAF> RENAME HAWKES KRAMERDOVE %UAF-I-PRACREN, proxies to HAWKES renamed %UAF-I-RENMSG, user record renamed %UAF-W-DEFPWD, Warning: copied or renamed records must receive new password %UAF-I-RDBMDFYMSG, identifier HAWKES modified
This example shows the warning message that the system displays if you fail to specify a new password with the RENAME command.
Renames an identifier in the rights database.
RENAME/IDENTIFIER current-id-name new-id-name
current-id-nameSpecifies the name of an identifier to be renamed.
new-id-nameSpecifies the new name for the identifier.
The RENAME/IDENTIFIER command is functionally equivalent to the following AUTHORIZE command:
UAF> RENAME/IDENTIFIER Q1SALES Q2SALES %UAF-I-RDBMDFYMSG, identifier Q1SALES modified
The command in this example renames the identifier Q1SALES to Q2SALES.
REVOKE/IDENTIFIER id-name user-spec
id-nameSpecifies the identifier name. The identifier name is a string of 1 to 31 alphanumeric characters. The name can contain underscores and dollar signs. It must contain at least one nonnumeric character.
user-specSpecifies the UIC identifier that uniquely identifies the user on the system. This type of identifier appears in alphanumeric format, not numeric format; for example, [GROUP1,JONES].
The REVOKE/IDENTIFIER command edits RIGHTSLIST.DAT, removing the user's name from the list of those who hold a given identifier. The change does not affect the process rights list of any current processes.
UAF> REVOKE/IDENTIFIER INVENTORY CRAMER %UAF-I-REVOKEMSG, identifier INVENTORY revoked from CRAMER
The command in this example revokes the identifier INVENTORY from the user Cramer. Cramer loses the identifier and any resources associated with it.
Note that because rights identifiers are stored in numeric format, it is not necessary to change records for users holding a renamed identifier.
Displays reports for selected UAF records on the current SYS$OUTPUT device.
SHOW/IDENTIFIER, SHOW/PROXY, and SHOW/RIGHTS are documented as separate commands.
user-specSpecifies the user name or UIC of the requested UAF record. If you omit the user-spec parameter, the UAF records of all users are listed. The asterisk (*) and percent sign (%) wildcard characters are permitted in the user name.
/BRIEFSpecifies that a brief report be displayed. In the report, the Directory field displays one of the following items:
- Disuser---The account has been disabled.
- Expired---The account has expired.
- A device and directory name---The login device and directory for the account (for example, DOCD$:[SMITH]).
If you omit the /BRIEF qualifier, AUTHORIZE displays a full report.
/FULLSpecifies that a full report be displayed, including identifiers held by the user. Full reports include the details of the limits, privileges, login flags, and the command interpreter as well as the identifiers held by the user. The password is not listed.
/EXACTControls whether the SHOW command matches the search string exactly or treats uppercase and lowercase letters as equivalents. Enclose the specified string within quotation marks (" "). Use /EXACT with the /PAGE=SAVE and /SEARCH qualifiers.
/NOHIGHLIGHT (default)Identifies how to display the line that contains a string once it is found. The following keywords are valid:BLINK
Use the /HIGHLIGHT qualifier with the /PAGE=SAVE and /SEARCH qualifiers.
/NOPAGE (default)Controls the information display on a screen. The following keywords are valid:
CLEAR_SCREEN Clear the screen before displaying the next page. SCROLL Display a continuous stream of information. SAVE[= n] Store information and enable the navigational keys listed in Table 5-1. By default, the command saves 5 pages. The maximum page width is 255 columns.

/SEARCH=stringUsed with the /PAGE=SAVE qualifier to specify a string to find in the information being displayed. You can dynamically change the search string by pressing the Find key (E1) while the information is being displayed.
/NOWRAP (default)Used with the /PAGE=SAVE qualifier to limit the number of columns to the width of the screen and wrap lines that extend beyond the width of the screen to the next line.
The /NOWRAP qualifier extends lines beyond the width of the screen. Use the /PAGE=SAVE qualifier and the screen control keys listed in Table 5-1 to view the entire screen.
The SHOW command produces reports on user authorization records. You can select the reports to be displayed, as follows:
- To display a single-user report, specify a user name.
- To display reports for all users in ascending sequence by user name, specify an asterisk wildcard character (*).
- To display reports for all users with a common UIC, specify the UIC. Users with the same UIC are listed in the order in which they were added to the SYSUAF.
You can also use the asterisk wildcard character to specify all or part of the UIC, as shown in the following examples:
Command Description SHOW [14,*] /BRIEF Displays a brief report for all users in group 14, in ascending sequence by member number. SHOW [*,6] /BRIEF Displays a brief report for all users with a member number of 6. SHOW [*,*] /BRIEF Displays a brief report for all users, in ascending sequence by UIC.
UAF> SHOW ROBIN
The command in this VAX example displays a full report for the user ROBIN. The display corresponds to the first example in the description of the ADD command. Most defaults are in effect.

The quotas Pbytlm and Queprio are placeholders only.
UAF> SHOW [360,*] /BRIEF
The command in this example displays a brief report for every user with a group UIC of 360.
Owner Username UIC Account Privs Pri Default Directory JOHN JAMES JAMES [360,201] USER Normal 4 DOCD$:[JAMES] SUZY JONES JONES [360,203] DOC Devour 4 DOCD$:[JONES] CLIFF BROWN BROWN [360,021] DOC All 4 disuser JOY CARTER CARTER [360,005] DOCSEC Group 4 expired
UAF> SHOW WELCH
This command displays a full report for the restricted user WELCH. This display corresponds to the second example in the description of the ADD command.

Note that WELCH is a captive user who does not receive announcements of new mail or the welcome message when logging in. His login command file, SECUREIN.COM, is presumably a captive command file that controls all of his operations. (Such a command file never exits, but performs operations for its user and logs him out when appropriate.) The CAPTIVE flag prevents WELCH from escaping control of the command file by using Ctrl/Y or other means. Furthermore, he is restricted to logging in between the hours of 5:00 P.M. and 8:59 A.M. on weekdays and 9:00 A.M. and 5:59 P.M. on weekends. Although he is allowed to use dial-up lines at all times during the week, he is not allowed to log in over the network. On weekends, he is further restricted so that he cannot dial in at any time or use the DCL command SET HOST between the hours of 6:00 P.M. and 8:59 A.M.
Displays information about an identifier, such as its name, value, attributes, and holders, on the current SYS$OUTPUT device.
id-nameSpecifies an identifier name. The identifier name is a string of 1 to 31 alphanumeric characters. The name can contain underscores and dollar signs. It must contain at least one nonnumeric character. If you omit the identifier name, you must specify /USER or /VALUE.
/BRIEFSpecifies a brief listing in which only the identifier name, value, and attributes are displayed. The default format is /BRIEF.
/FULLSpecifies a full listing in which the names of the identifier's holders are displayed along with the identifier's name, value, and attributes.
/USER=user-specSpecifies one or more users whose identifiers are to be displayed. The user-spec can be a user name or a UIC. You can use the asterisk wildcard character (*) to specify multiple UICs or all user names. UICs must be in the form [*,*], [n,*], [*,n], or [n,n]. A wildcard user name specification (*) displays identifiers alphabetically by user name; a wildcard UIC specification ([*,*]) displays them numerically by UIC.
/VALUE=value-specifierSpecifies the value of the identifier to be listed. The following formats are valid for the value-specifier:
IDENTIFIER:n An integer value in the range of 65,536 to 268,435,455. You can also specify the value in hexadecimal (precede the value with %X) or octal (precede the value with %O).
To differentiate general identifiers from UIC identifiers, %X80000000 is added to the value you specify.
GID:n GID is the POSIX group identifier. It is an integer value in the range 0 to 16,777,215 (%XFFFFFF). The system will add %XA400.0000 to the value you specify and then enter this new value into the system RIGHTSLIST as an identifier. UIC:uic A UIC value in the standard UIC format.
See also the screen control qualifiers listed under the SHOW command:
The SHOW/IDENTIFIER command displays identifier names, values, attributes, and holders in various formats depending on the qualifiers specified. Two of these formats are illustrated in the following examples.
UAF> SHOW/IDENTIFIER/FULL INVENTORY
This command would produce output similar to the following example:
Name Value Attributes INVENTORY %X80010006 NORESOURCE NODYNAMIC Holder Attributes ANDERSON NORESOURCE NODYNAMIC BROWN NORESOURCE NODYNAMIC CRAMER NORESOURCE NODYNAMIC
This command displays the identifier associated with the user ANDERSON, as follows:
Name Value Attributes ANDERSON [000300,000015] NORESOURCE NODYNAMIC
The identifier is shown, along with its value and attributes. Note, however, that this is the same result you would produce had you specified ANDERSON's UIC with the following forms of the command:
