> session auth login user
Authenticate as stated user. Use this command from
within the graal client (or use the login command of the graal client).
This command returns an errorcode that makes the graal client ask
for your password without echoing it. The graal client then sends the
command below (the same command, with the password as the last
argument) which is the command that really authenticates the session.
> session auth login user password
Authenticate with user name and password. Use the
command above, which makes the graal cilent ask for the password
withuot echoing it.
This command can be used inside scripts where you want to talk to
the graal-server and you've already retrieved the password in an
appropriate way from the user.
> session info
Returns information about the session. Format:
session <session-id> [authenticated as <username>]
> session quit
Finishes the session and logs out.
> session quit with cookie
Finishes the session and logs out, but returns a
long random string. By sending this string to the server at a later
time (up to 30 minutes later), you can reauthenticate as the same
user. This makes it possible for CGI-programs to avoid saving user
name and password on disk, and use a cookie instead.
> session auth cookie cookie
Reauthenticates with a previously returned cookie.
