#1690 Option ldap_sudo_include_regexp named incorrectly
Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by pbrezina.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=883408 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6)

Description of problem:
The "ldap_sudo_include_regexp" option is named incorrectly, because sudo
doesn't actually support regular expressions (as in, e.g. perl-compatible
regular expressions) for configuration, but instead shell-like wildcards. In
particular, sudoers(5) states about wildcards: "Note that these are not regular
expressions."

This results in confusion.

The option would better be named "ldap_sudo_include_wildcards" or
"ldap_sudo_include_glob" and documentation should be updated accordingly.
Namely:

1. sssd-sudo(5) - change "regular expression" to "wildcards" or "glob
characters".
2. sssd-ldap(5) - the description of the option in question.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sssd-1.9.2-30.el6.x86_64
libsss_sudo-1.9.2-30.el6.x86_64
sudo-1.8.6p3-6.el6.x86_64
sssd-client-1.9.2-30.el6.x86_64
libsss_idmap-1.9.2-30.el6.x86_64

Leave the option as is. Fix man page.
