Usually users log in and are added to the eperson list by being
authenticated through LDAP. They usually are added with limited access
and later as required I manually upgrade their access privileges.
I have a need to batch add a set of users and put them into a specific
access group and have them later authenticated with LDAP.
I could get the users all to initially login, be authenticated by LDAP
and then manually adjust their permissions later. A bit of a drudgery
task but I would be happy to do this except that consensus is that this
is too onerous for the poor users as they want to log in and get their
stuff without delay
I know their user ids but not their passwords or details.
It would be good to use <dspace>/bin/dspace user --add <whatever>
but this won't run unless given a password and is likely to want user
details which we want to be obtained from the LDAP server.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
