#3642 RFE: Group merging

Created 7 months ago by pbrezina

There is going to be a new feature in nss, called group merging.

group: files [SUCCESS=merge] sss

If you put something like this in nsswitch.conf it will first lookup group in /etc/groups, then in sssd domains and the result will be merged. This however contradicts with recent change in order where sssd is searched first because it now supports files provider. We do have to implement this ourselves somehow.

The reasoning behind this can be found here:
