squid_unix_group(8) -- Linux man page

 

NAME

squid_unix_group - Squid UNIX Group external_acl helper  

SYNOPSIS

squid_unix_group [-g groupname] [-g groupname...] [-p]  

DESCRIPTION

This helper allows Squid to base access controls on users memberships in UNIX groups.
-g groupname
Specifies a group name to match.
-p
Also match the users primary group from /etc/passwd
 

EXAMPLES

This squid.conf example defines two Squid acls. usergroup1 matches users in group1, and usergroup2 matches users in group2 or group3
external_acl_type unix_group %LOGIN /usr/local/squid/libexec/squid_unix_group -p
acl usergroup1 external unix_group group1
acl usergroup2 external unix_group group2 group3
 

NOTES

By default up to 11 groups can be matched in one acl (including commandline specified groups). This limit is defined by MAX_GROUPS in the source code.
