Management Commands

MamaCAS ships with custom management commands to aid in some common tasks. You can see which management commands are available by running:


The commands specific to MamaCAS will show up underneath the [mama_cas] heading. To run a given command:

$ <command name>



Tickets created by MamaCAS are not removed from the database at the moment of invalidation. Running this command will delete all invalid tickets from the database. Tickets are invalidated either when they expire a configurable number of seconds after creation or by being consumed. Either situation means the ticket is no longer valid for future authentication attempts and can be safely deleted.

It is recommended that this command be run on a regular basis so invalid tickets do not become a performance or storage concern.
