SSSD_Config - file /etc/sssd/sssd.config

SSSD’s configuration file is in a standard ‘ini’ format.

The ‘sssd’ section will define one or more active domains, which are then configured in the ‘domain/{domain}’ section of the configuration. These domains are then available via the ‘domains’ method, and the configuration of a domain can be fetched as a dictionary using the ‘domain_config’ method.


>>> sssd_conf = shared[SSSD_Config]
>>> sssd_conf.getint('nss', 'reconnection_retries')
>>> domain = sssd_conf.domain_config('')
>>> 'ldap_uri' in domain

Bases: insights.core.IniConfigFile

Parse the content of the /etc/sssd/sssd.config file.

The ‘sssd’ section must always exist. Within that, the ‘domains’ parameter is usually defined to give a comma-separated list of the domains that sssd is to manage.


Return the configuration dictionary for a specific domain, given as the raw name as listed in the ‘domains’ property of the sssd section. This then looks for the equivalent ‘domain/{domain}’ section of the config file.

property domains

Returns the list of domains defined in the ‘sssd’ section. This is used to refer to the domain-specific sections of the configuration.
