Manage package owners

Synopsis

npm owner add <user> [<@scope>/]<pkg>
npm owner rm <user> [<@scope>/]<pkg>
npm owner ls [<@scope>/]<pkg>
aliases: author

Note: This command is unaware of workspaces.

Description

Manage ownership of published packages.

  • ls: List all the users who have access to modify a package and push new versions. Handy when you need to know who to bug for help.
  • add: Add a new user as a maintainer of a package. This user is enabled to modify metadata, publish new versions, and add other owners.
  • rm: Remove a user from the package owner list. This immediately revokes their privileges.

Note that there is only one level of access. Either you can modify a package, or you can't. Future versions may contain more fine-grained access levels, but that is not implemented at this time.

If you have two-factor authentication enabled with auth-and-writes (see npm-profile) then you'll need to include an otp on the command line when changing ownership with --otp.

Configuration

registry

The base URL of the npm registry.

otp

  • Default: null
  • Type: null or String

This is a one-time password from a two-factor authenticator. It's needed when publishing or changing package permissions with npm access.

If not set, and a registry response fails with a challenge for a one-time password, npm will prompt on the command line for one.
