Description Lukas Zapletal 2018-05-25 07:01:25 UTC
When I run the command to import my templates from git I get an SELinux denial:

type=PROCTITLE msg=audit(1526982093.115:5964): proctitle=67697400636C6F6E65002D2D007373683A2F2F676974406769746875622E636F6D2F67676174776172642F47475F4B69636B73746172742E676974002F746D702F6432303138303532322D33313436362D337375657972

When running with audit2allow the following policy te is created:

module my-git 1.0;

require {
type passenger_tmp_t;
type passenger_t;
class lnk_file { create getattr unlink };

#============= passenger_t ==============
allow passenger_t passenger_tmp_t:lnk_file { create getattr unlink };

Valid 6.3.z bug, patch pending merge.


Comment 4 Peter Ondrejka 2018-09-13 15:44:05 UTC
Assuming the command in question is foreman-rake templates:import ... 
Verified on Sat 6.4 snap 21, no selinux denials experienced when importing git templates
