doveadm-auth


SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] auth [-a auth_socket_path] [-x auth_info] user [password]

DESCRIPTION
       The  auth  command can be used to test the authentication for the given
       user.

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -a auth_socket_path
              This option is used to specify an absolute path to  an  alterna-
              tive UNIX domain socket.

              By   default  doveadm(1)  will  use  the  socket  /var/run/dove-
              cot/auth-client.  The socket may be located  in  another  direc-
              tory,  when  the  default  base_dir  setting  was  overridden in
              /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.

       -x auth_info
              auth_info specifies additional conditions for the auth  command.
              The  auth_info option string has to be given as name=value pair.
              For multiple conditions the -x option could be supplied multiple
              times.
              Possible names for the auth_info are:

              service
                     The service for which the authentication lookup should be
                     tested.  The value may be the name of a service, commonly
                     used with Dovecot.  For example: imap, pop3 or smtp.

              lip    The local IP address (server) for the test.

              rip    The remote IP address (client) for the test.

              lport  The local port, e.g. 143

              rport  The remote port, e.g. 24567

ARGUMENTS
       user   The  user's  login  name.   Depending  on the configuration, the
              login name may be for example jane or john@example.com.

       password
              Optionally the user's password.  doveadm(1) will prompt for  the
              password, if none was given.
