       semanage-boolean - SELinux Policy Management boolean tool


       semanage  boolean  [-h]  [-n]  [-N]  [-s  STORE] [ --extract | --deleteall | --list [-C] |
       --modify ( --on | --off ) boolean ]


       semanage is used to  configure  certain  elements  of  SELinux  policy  without  requiring
       modification  to  or recompilation from policy sources.  semanage boolean command controls
       the settings of booleans in SELinux policy.  booleans are if-then-else  rules  written  in
       SELinux  Policy.  They can be used to customize the way that SELinux Policy rules effect a
       confined domain.
