Print User ClassAds in long form

-format fmt attr

Print selected attribute of the User ClassAds using the given format.

-autoformat[:lhVr,tng] attr1 [attr2 …] or -af[:lhVr,tng] attr1 [attr2 …]

(output option) Display attribute(s) or expression(s) formatted in a default way according to attribute types. This option takes an arbitrary number of attribute names as arguments, and prints out their values, with a space between each value and a newline character after the last value. It is like the -format option without format strings. This output option does not work in conjunction with any of the options -add, -enable, or -disable

It is assumed that no attribute names begin with a dash character, so that the next word that begins with dash is the start of the next option. The autoformat option may be followed by a colon character and formatting qualifiers to deviate the output formatting from the default:

l label each field,

h print column headings before the first line of output,

V use %V rather than %v for formatting (string values are quoted),

r print “raw”, or unevaluated values,

, add a comma character after each field,

t add a tab character before each field instead of the default space character,

n add a newline character after each field,

g add a newline character between ClassAds, and suppress spaces before each field.

Use -af:h to get tabular values with headings.

Use -af:lrng to get -long equivalent format.

The newline and comma characters may not be used together. The l and h characters may not be used together.

-add user1 [user2 …]

Add User ClassAds for the given users.

-enable user1 [user2 …]

Enable the given users, adding them if necessary.

-disable user1 [user2 …]

Disable the given users. Disabled users cannot submit jobs.

-reason reason-string

Provide a reason for disabling when used with -disable. The disable reason will be included in the error message when submit fails because a user is disabled.
