DESCRIPTION

This cookbook installs sudo and configures the /etc/sudoers file.

REQUIREMENTS

Requires that the platform has a package named sudo and the sudoers file is /etc/sudoers.

ATTRIBUTES

The following attributes are set to blank arrays:

node['authorization']['sudo']['groups']
node['authorization']['sudo']['users']

They are passed into the sudoers template which iterates over the values to add sudo permission to the specified users and groups.

If you prefer to use passwordless sudo just set the following attribute to true:

node['authorization']['sudo']['passwordless']

USAGE

To use this cookbook, set the attributes above on the node via a role or the node object itself. In a role.rb:

"authorization" => {
  "sudo" => {
    "groups" => ["admin", "wheel", "sysadmin"],
    "users" => ["jerry", "greg"],
    "passwordless" => true
  }
}

In JSON (role.json or on the node object):

"authorization": {
  "sudo": {
    "groups": [
      "admin",
      "wheel",
      "sysadmin"
    ],
    "users": [
      "jerry",
      "greg"
    ],
    "passwordless": true
  }
}

Note that the template for the sudoers file has the group "sysadmin" with ALL:ALL permission, though the group by default does not exist.
