7.1.7. Group Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

The meaning of Group depends on the type of module that is doing the authentication. For UNIX and SYSTEM, it means whether the user is a member of the group as defined by the group file (usually /etc/group/). <AuthBy SYSTEM> supports both numeric and symbolic group names.
For <AuthBy SQL>, it runs and uses the result of the GroupMembershipQuery if defined. For more information, see Section 3.35.19. GroupMembershipQuery.
For <AuthBy LDAP2>, it requires GroupSearchFilter and related options to be defined. For more information, see Section 3.43.14. GroupSearchFilter.
For other AuthBy modules, it has no meaning, and always causes a rejection.
