SYNOPSIS

[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_group [arguments]

DESCRIPTION

The group service module for PAM accepts or rejects users based on their membership in a particular file group.

The following options may be passed to the pam_group module:

deny Reverse the meaning of the test, i.e., reject the applicant if and only if he or she is a member of the specified group. This can be useful to exclude certain groups of users from certain services.
fail_safe If the specified group does not exist, or has no members, act as if it does exist and the applicant is a member.
group = groupname
Specify the name of the group to check. The default is "wheel".
root_only Skip this module entirely if the target account is not the superuser account.
