DOVEADM-USER(1) 			     Dovecot				  DOVEADM-USER(1)

NAME
       doveadm-user - Perform a user lookup in Dovecot's userdbs

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] user [-a userdb_socket_path] [-f field] [-u] [-x auth_info] user ...

DESCRIPTION
       The  user command is used to perform a user lookup - to show what information Dovecot sees
       about the user(s), or if it exists at all in the configured userdb(s).

       The auth_info may be useful when the userdb is for example a  SQL  database  and  you  are
       using  %variables,  like %s or %l, in the user_query setting.  Or when you have configured
       the userdb in a way like this:

       userdb {
	 driver = passwd-file
	 args = /etc/%s.passwd
       }

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -a userdb_socket_path
	      This option is used to specify an absolute  path	to  an	alternative  UNIX  domain
	      socket.

	      By default doveadm(1) will use the socket /var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb.  The socket
	      may be located in another directory, when the default base_dir setting was overrid-
	      den in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.

       -f field
	      When this option and the name of a userdb field is given, doveadm(1) will show only
	      the value of the specified field.

       -u     When this option is given, doveadm(1) will only show values from the userdb.  With-
	      out  -u  parameter  if  any of the uid, gid, home or mail fields are missing, their
	      defaults are taken from configuration file.

       -x auth_info
	      auth_info specifies additional conditions for  the  user	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 userdb 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   Is a user's login name.  Depending on the configuration, a login name  may  be  for
	      example  jane or john@example.com.  It's also possible to use '*' and '?' wildcards
	      (e.g. -u *@example.org).

EXAMPLE
       Perform a user lookup for the users jane and john@example.com.

       doveadm user jane john@example.com
       userdb: jane
	 uid	   : 8001
	 gid	   : 8001
	 home	   : /home/jane
	 mail	   : sdbox:~/sdbox
	 plugins   : sieve
	 quota_rule: *:storage=150M

       userdb: john@example.com
	 home	   : /srv/mail/8/70312/79832
	 uid	   : 79832
	 gid	   : 70312
	 mail	   : mdbox:~/mdbox

       The next example shows a user lookup, using wildcards.

       doveadm user *.?oe@example.net
       jane.doe@example.net
       judy.roe@example.net
       john.doe@example.net
