Mail

You may use the configuration file to send mail messages when certain actions occur. The following fragment sends mail to root whenever the adduser program runs:

if(command=="adduser") { 
   system("mail root", 
      "pm: adduser was run as root by " + user + "\n"); 
}

Environmental variables

You can use environment variables to turn on or off special features of Privilege Manager configuration files. In the following example, the list of Privilege Manager variables is printed to the user's screen if the DEBUG environment variable is set to "yes". This is useful when debugging a configuration file. Simply set the DEBUG variable to "yes" in your shell, then run pmrun. Privilege Manager notices the DEBUG variable, and calls the printvars function.

if(getenv("DEBUG")=="yes") 
   printvars();

NIS netgroups

If you have a large site where you add and remove hosts frequently, you may already be using netgroups to associate a group name with a set of hosts. The Privilege Manager innetgroup function inquires if a named host is a member of a named netgroup.

For example, you can reject requests originating from any machine that is not in the netgroup myhosts as follows:

if(!innetgroup("myhosts", host)) 
   reject;

Specify trusted hosts

You can reject all requests that do not originate from your domain; that is, specify only the hosts that you trust to issue requests by using the following:

if(submithost !in {"*.quest.com"}) 
   reject;
