We could have an action in the token handler to reassign a token to another user.

The question is, how could we change the uid?
Or: The reassignment should probably be dependent on the existing tokenowner.
Or should we only change the assigned resolver and assigned realm and not change the uid?

We might also want to add several examples of scripts for the script handler and have a script, that reassigns the token like this:


from flask import Flask
from privacyidea.lib.token import unassign_token, assign_token
from privacyidea.lib.user import User
import argparse

NEW_REALM = "new_realm"

def reassign_token(serial, username):
    app = Flask(__name__, static_folder="static",
    app.config.from_pyfile("/etc/privacyidea/pi.cfg", silent=True)

    with app.app_context():
        # Set global values
        assign_token(serial, User(username, NEW_REALM))

parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument('--serial', dest='serial')
parser.add_argument('--user', dest='username')
args = parser.parse_args()

# reassign the token to a new realm
reassign_token(args.serial, args.username)

This might acutally help users to create their own scripts!

I think this is very specific.
Such a script has been published in the new scripts repository here:

I think it is a good idea to collect scripts, that perform a very specifc task or to collect such scripts and later decide which actions should make it into the main software.
