Document URL: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/system-level_authentication_guide/configuring_services#sssd-ldap-sudo

Section Number and Name: 7.5.4. Configuring Services: sudo

Describe the issue: AD SUDO provider was introduced in 7.0 as TechPreview:
However, it has proven itself over time, it can be fully supported/documented. We may just need to warn user that as we do not control the server side (Active Directory), they are in charge of installing the SUDO LDAP scheme and filling it with the proper data that SSSD needs.
