-h, --help

Specify the user’s password upon creation.

-e <email>, --email <email>

The next options relate to user roles. They work in pairs, one option granting a right while the other revokes it; obviously options of the same pair are mutually exclusive.

The long options are named with the matching right, prefix it with a no to revoke the right. For short options, the upper case letter grants the right while the lower case letter revokes it. Short options might be combined into a single one such as -aJ to both revoke the admin right and grant the jukebox one.

-A, --admin

Grant admin rights.

-a, --noadmin

Revoke admin rights.

-J, --jukebox

Grant jukebox rights.

-j, --nojukebox

Revoke jukebox rights.


To add a new admin user named MyUserName having password MyAwesomePassword:

$ supysonic-cli user add MyUserName -p MyAwesomePassword
$ supysonic-cli user setroles -A MyUserName
