Class CreateAdministrator

  extended by org.dspace.administer.CreateAdministrator

public class CreateAdministrator
extends Object

A command-line tool for creating an initial administrator for setting up a DSpace site. Prompts for an e-mail address, last name, first name and password from standard input. An administrator group is then created and the data passed in used to create an e-person in that group.

Alternatively, it can be used to take the email, first name, last name and desired password as arguments thus: CreateAdministrator -e [email] -f [first name] -l [last name] -p [password] This is particularly convenient for automated deploy scripts that require an initial administrator, for example, before deployment can be completed
