To All, I am attempting to setup a server to use SSPI for mapping operating system users/groups to various postgres roles. In process I found that everything is driven off of the username in the mapping with no group but the mapping file supports regular expressions to do some mapping.
As detailed in: http://serverfault.com/questions/219596/is-it-possbile-to-restrict-who-can-connect-to-postgres-using-active-directory-gro http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.0/interactive/auth-methods.html#SSPI-AUTH http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.0/interactive/auth-username-maps.html Would it be possible to include either the primary group or a list of groups in the username string for mapping in the pg_ident.conf file? For example: User Tom is a member of the "sales" primary group in the DEV domain with a secondary group of "users". When he attempts to login, postgres builds the following username for matching purposes: "Tom:sa...@dev" or "Tom:sales,us...@dev". At that point we could map the user to a specific postgres based on the group(s) instead of using username prefixes or hard coding each name. Christopher A Hotchkiss JPMorgan Chase & Co.
