Hi Alexander,

Since i do not want myadmin1 to be able to add or remove the host from
other xyzhostgroups into myhostgroup membership.  Is it possible that
myadmin1 only sees objects i specifically given the permissions to  and
not any other hosts outside of myhostgroup?  That way he cannot add the
host he is not supposed to manage within myhostgroup
OK, now I get it. An easiest way to solve this problem, no surprise, is
organizational: do not give host group admin rights to include hosts to
the hostgroup or delete them, only allow them to manage what's in the
host group.

You then need to create a separate permission for 'add'/'del' rights
against 'member' attribute that would allow to include/remove hosts.
That's easy but it would not allow you to limit *what* hosts could be
added/removed from the host group.

Unfortunately, to make that possible, permission-add/permission-mod
should be extended to allow specifying target attribute's values like described in the RHDS Administration Guide:

Even then to define something like this, you need to have specific
naming of hosts to be able to specify a pattern as a 'member' attribute
value. Not sure how this is going to work for you in AWS, though, so
this is why I'm saying it is an organizational issue, not really a
technical one.

Thanks for your great support!

Let me try summarize it!
I want xyzadmin of xyzhostgroup be able to mange all the hosts with in the xyzhostgroup  - 
which means he should be able to delete/ add/ modify the hosts under xyzhostgroup .  This 
is what i currently  have in the role :  myhostgroup-role (role)--> myadmin1 (admin 
user)--> myhostgroup (host group where i have added the hosts) --> 
my-hostgroup-privilege --> my-hostgroup-permission
The problem is that the moment i add memberOf =cn=.... in the target filter then 
myadmin1 cannot add/delete the hosts with in myhostgroup and any other hosts in 
other hostgroups. However if i assign the role permission with with 
subtree=dc=us-west-2,dc=compute,dc=amazonaws,dc=com and filter as  
(&(cn=myhostgroup)(objectclass=ipahostgroup)) and member attribute added then 
myadmin1 gets the expected access to manage the hosts within myhostgroup but then 
he also gets access to delete and manage other hosts outside of myhostgroup which i 
dont want!

Thanks & Regards,Deepak

Isn't this is what you wanted: a user has ability to manage all hosts in
the host group but not other hosts.
