I'm trying to wrap my brain around sudoRunAsUser|Group and negation.
Negation seems to have an obvious use in sudoUser: "allow this group,
except this person."
Why would you use negation in a sudoRunAsUser, though? I mean:
I read this as "allow running as postgres."
Or is it a way of explicitly rejecting certain access in this
sudoRole, more like:
Or something else?
Any enlightenment appreciated.
PS: Yes, this is for the new edition of sudo mastery. I am sadly
limited by not having a multibillion-dollar employer to experiment on,
as I did in the first edition. ;-)
