Description (last modified by dpal) (diff)


+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #741981 +++

Description of problem:
Currently SSSD has 1 monolithic timeout for nss data.  users / groups / netgroups.

This is impaction in situations where Sudo needs to get at updated netgroup data for Authorization decisions.  But can only acquire data from the (default 90 minute) cache.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup an IPA / SSSD client for Sudo
2. Perform a Sudo action without the host added to the hostgroup/netgroup in a sudo rule.
3. Notice that the action is denied and cached.
4. Add the host to the hostgroup/netgroup that is in a sudo rule
5. Notice that the action is still denied.
Actual results:
Cached data is not updated

Expected results:
Cached data is individually timed out, or refreshed for actions such as sudo lookups.
