I'm using sssd with LDAP backend / domain. I wonder if there is a way to influence the
attributes which are queried by sssd? Like not just the mapping but which attributes are
ok to be queried and which attributes should not? I have some cloud servers which are
accessing our internal directory via slapd (proxy).
I have two questions re this:
1. I use "services: nss,pam", so why is sssd querying sudoers information via
the ldap domain like:
ldap filter used by sssd:
Previously, there was some heuristic when sudo provider was enable
man sssd.conf says:
The SUDO provider used for the domain. Supported SUDO providers
“ldap” for rules stored in LDAP. See sssd-ldap(5) for more
information on configuring LDAP.
“ipa” the same as “ldap” but with IPA default settings.
“ad” the same as “ldap” but with AD default settings.
“none” disables SUDO explicitly.
Default: The value of “id_provider” is used if it is set.
The detailed instructions for configuration of sudo_provider are in
the manual page sssd-sudo(5). There are many configuration options
that can be used to adjust the behavior. Please refer to
"ldap_sudo_*" in sssd-ldap(5).
NOTE: Sudo rules are periodically downloaded in the background
unless the sudo provider is explicitly disabled. Set sudo_provider
= None to disable all sudo-related activity in SSSD if you do not
want to use sudo with SSSD at all.
Just disable sudo provider and such queries will be gone.
2. I as well would like to modify the attributes which are queried by
sssd. I would like sssd NOT to query "userPassword" for example. A lot of other
attributes which are queried are not relevant in my environment as well e.g. the
ldap attributes queried by sssd:
objectClass uid userPassword uidNumber gidNumber gecos homeDirectory loginShell
krbPrincipalName cn GroupMembership modifyTimestamp modifyTimestamp shadowLastChange
shadowMin shadowMax shadowWarning shadowInactive shadowExpire shadowFlag krbLastPwdChange
krbPasswordExpiration pwdAttribute authorizedService accountExpires userAccountControl
nsAccountLock host rhost loginDisabled loginExpirationTime loginAllowedTimeMap
sshPublicKey userCertificate;binary mail
Is it possible to influence this behavior somehow, I tried user_attributes in the domain
section as well as in the nss section without success, e.g. "user_attributes =
any help or clarifying words are appreciated, have a great day
krb* realted options should be checked just for `auth_provider = krb5`
You did not share your sssd.conf but you might override some attributes
in sssd.conf (check man page sssd-ldap)
