Manages Plone site managers on multiple sites and clusters.

Project description

This component provides a console utility plonemanagers and a Plone component that adds or removes managers on all Plone sites in a set of Zope clusters.

Note that aw.managersmanager has a client command line utility and a Zope component server side counterpart.


Either (typically on a client, you don’t need Zope or anything else)

$ easy_install aw.managersmanager

Or in a buildout (with Zope / Plone installation)

parts =
eggs =
recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs =
recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
zcml =

Add a config file in your home directory named .managersmanager. Or run once the plonemanagers console tool that will create a skeleton if this file does not exist. See Config file below.


Common usages, respectively for adding a manager, listing Plone sites, removing a manager and asking for help:

$ plonemanagers adduser <login> <password>

$ plonemanagers list

$ plonemanagers deluser <login>

$ plonemanagers --help

Config file

The configuration file is named .managersmanager and is located in your user default directory.

If you don’t have such (mandatory) config file, a default one will becreated the first time you invoke plonemanagers. This default config file is fully commented out, such it’s pretty easy to tweak your client installation to fit all the Zope / Plone clusters under your control.

Its content must match these rules

# Main section (required)

# All Zope clusters
clusters =

# HTTP connection timeout (in seconds)
timeout = 10

# Each item in above "clusters" must have its sections

# One or more root URL (the ZEO clients of this cluster)
root-urls =

# A *Zope root* manager login
login = admin
password = mysecret

# Same thing for all clusters
