ACL SETUSER username [rule [rule ...]]

ACL categories: @admin, @slow, @dangerous

ACL Rules

Dragonfly ACL rules are split into two categories:

Command Rules

  • +@<category>: Adds all the commands in the specified category to the list of commands the user is able to execute. For example, +@string adds all the string commands.
  • -@<category>: Like +@<category> but removes all the commands in the category instead of adding them.

User Management Rules

  • ON: Set the user as active, it will be possible to authenticate as this user using AUTH <username> <password>.
  • OFF: Set user as not active, it will be impossible to authenticate as this user.
  • >password: Set or update the password of this user.


Simple string reply: OK on success. If the rules contain errors, the error is returned.
