Syntax for authentication credentials

The BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 User Administration Tool uses the following syntax for authentication credentials:

Subparameter

Description

-bas_auth

This subparameter specifies that the administrative account uses BlackBerry Administration Service authentication.

Use this subparameter with -username <user_name> and -password <password>. If you specify -username <user_name> and -password <password> without specifying -bas_auth or -ad_auth, the tool assumes that the administrator account uses BlackBerry Administration Service authentication (-bas_auth).

-ad_auth

This subparameter specifies that the BlackBerry Administration Service administrator account uses Microsoft Active Directory authentication.

Use this parameter with -username <user_name>, -password <password>, and -domain <domain>.

-sso_auth

This subparameter specifies that you want the tool to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service using your current Windows authentication credentials. This parameter assumes that you configured the BlackBerry Administration Service for single sign-on authentication using Microsoft Active Directory authentication.

If you do not specify authentication credentials when you type a command, by default, the tool tries to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service using your Windows authentication credentials, even if you do not specify -sso_auth.

-username <user_name>

This subparameter specifies the user name of the administrator account.

Use this parameter with -bas_auth or _ad_auth and -password <password> (and -domain <domain> if you use -ad_auth).

-password <password>

This subparameter specifies the password of the administrator account.

Use this parameter with -bas_auth or _ad_auth and -username <user_name> (and -domain <domain> if you use -ad_auth).

-domain <domain>

This subparameter specifies the domain that hosts the administrator account.

Use this parameter with -ad_auth, -username <user_name>, and -password <password>.

Example: Adding a user account (administator account that uses BlackBerry Administration Service authentication)

besuseradminclient -bas_auth -username admin -password password -add -u jpalmer@test.rim.net

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -add -u jpalmer@test.rim.net

Example: Adding a user account (administator account that uses Microsoft Active Directory authentication)

besuseradminclient -ad_auth -username admin -password password -domain Domain.net -add -u jpalmer@test.rim.net

Example: Adding a user account (administator account that uses single sign-on authentication)

besuseradminclient -sso_auth -add -u jpalmer@test.rim.net

besuseradminclient -add -u jpalmer@test.rim.net
