pam_env: PAM module to set/unset environment variables
pam_env - PAM module to set/unset environment variables
- pam_env.so [debug] [conffile=conf-file] [envfile=env-file] [readenv=0|1] [user_envfile=env-file] [user_readenv=0|1]
By default rules for (un)setting of variables is taken from the config file /etc/security/pam_env.conf if no other file is specified.
This module can also parse a file with simple KEY=VAL pairs on separate lines (/etc/environment by default). You can change the default file to parse, with the envfile flag and turn it on or off by setting the readenv flag to 1 or 0 respectively.
- Indicate an alternative pam_env.conf style configuration file to override the default. This can be useful when different services need different environments.
- A lot of debug information is printed with syslog(3).
- Indicate an alternative environment file to override the default. This can be useful when different services need different environments.
- Turns on or off the reading of the file specified by envfile (0 is off, 1 is on). By default this option is on.
- Indicate an alternative .pam_environment file to override the default. This can be useful when different services need different environments. The filename is relative to the user home directory.
- Turns on or off the reading of the user specific environment file. 0 is off, 1 is on. By default this option is off.
