       semanage-login - SELinux Policy Management linux user to SELinux User mapping tool


       semanage login [-h] [-n] [-N] [-S STORE] [ --add -s SEUSER -r RANGE LOGIN | --delete LOGIN
       | --deleteall | --extract | --list [-C] | --modify -s SEUSER -r RANGE LOGIN ]


       semanage is used to  configure  certain  elements  of  SELinux  policy  without  requiring
       modification to or recompilation from policy sources.  semanage login controls the mapping
       between a Linux User and the SELinux User.  It can be used to  turn   on  confined  users.
       For  example  you  could  define  that a particular user or group of users will login to a
       system as the user_u user.  Prefix the group name with a '%'  sign  to  indicate  a  group
