Document user and group mapping support for PAM authenticators

    Details

    • Sprint:
      MXS-SPRINT-74

      Description

      MaxScale's PAM authenticators support user and group mapping, but this is completely undocumented:

      https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb-maxscale-23-pam-authenticator/

      The relevant information and limitations should probably be documented. Feel free to refer to the MariaDB Server documentation that describes the pam_user_map PAM module, where it is relevant:

      https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/user-and-group-mapping-with-pam/

      One very important thing to document is that based on the commit associated with MXS-1758, it looks like group mapping only works with MaxScale if the proxy user is the ''@'%' anonymous user.
