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.

KNOWN ISSUES

       Does not understand gid aliased groups sometimes used  to  work  around
       groups  size  limitations. If you are using gid aliased groups then you
       must specify each alias by name.
