This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
When the SSSD is configured to use the IPA provider
When the SSSD is configured to use the IPA as the ID provider
since id provider is the one we inherit as sudo provider.
We should also say that sudo has to be put in "services". There is a sample configuration that shows that, but it is not mentioned explicitly.
We should mention that nisdomain has to be configured when using netgroups/hostgroups.
Temporarily moving bugs to MODIFIED to work around errata tool bug
Verified the bug on SSSD Version : sssd-1.11.2-10.el7.x86_64
The sssd-sudo man page has been updated with the following information:
Note: in order to use netgroups or IPA hostgroups in sudo rules, you also need to correctly set nisdomainname(1) to your NIS domain name (which equals to IPA domain name when using hostgroups).
CONFIGURING SSSD TO FETCH SUDO RULES
All configuration that is needed on SSSD side is to extend the list of services with "sudo" in [sssd] section of sssd.conf(5). To speed up the LDAP lookups, you can also set search base for sudo rules using ldap_sudo_search_base option.
The following example shows how to configure SSSD to download sudo rules from an LDAP server.
config_file_version = 2
services = nss, pam, sudo
domains = EXAMPLE
id_provider = ldap
sudo_provider = ldap
ldap_uri = ldap://example.com
ldap_sudo_search_base = ou=sudoers,dc=example,dc=com
When the SSSD is configured to use IPA as the ID provider, the sudo provider is automatically enabled. The sudo search base is configured to use the compat tree (ou=sudoers,$DC).
