#3469 extend sss-certmap man page regarding priority processing
Closed: Fixed a year ago Opened 2 years ago by jhrozek.

Ticket was cloned from Red Hat Bugzilla (product Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7): Bug 1459348

Description of problem:

The sss-certmap man page could use a statement in the priority section
mentioning that processing stops when a matched rule is found and no further
rules are checked.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sssd-1.15.2-43.el7.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man sss-certmap

Actual results:

   PRIORITY
       The rules are process by priority while the number '0' (zero) indicates
the highest priority.
       The higher the number the lower is the priority. A missing value
indicates the lowest
       priority.

       Internally the priority is treated as unsigned 32bit integer, using a
priority value larger
       than 4294967295 will cause an error.


Expected results:

A note about processing stopping after a match would be helpful.

Since we are required to release a new upstream tarball no later than Friday Oct-20, I'm moving tickets that will not be closed by that date to the next milestone, 1.16.1

@sbose I think this ticket should definitely not block the 1.16.1 release but I wonder if you have an opinion on whether it should be fixed in 1.16.2 or later (even deferred if you think so)

For now, I'm proposing 2.0 because this issue doesn't affect any users.

|| statement in the priority section mentioning that processing stops when a matched rule is found and no further rules are checked.

Cannot find above statement in sss_certmap man page.
sssd-1.16.1-2.fc27.x86_64

Yes, adding this statement is what this ticket is about.
