I wrote a shell script (bash+awk) that "do the job" by using "ipa
user-show FOO" and looping over each hbac (ipa hbacrule-show), sudo (ipa
sudorule-show), and groups (ipa group-show) ... But it's ugly and really
dependant on the output of these commands.
As Tomas said, there is an API and I could probably do it from python
but I'm no dev so I'll stick my poor's man script for the moment...
I was just hoping that this need would meet other people needs and
hopefully justify the addition of a button in the GUI to export all
theses informations automagically... But I know it's a lot to ask, and
definitely not the top priority.
