The 2 human users: user01 and user02
The application id and group: ihsadmin

I want the users to be able to sudo anything from /opt/ihs/bin/*
and
The rule be run as ihsadmin

Can someone please help with the syntax and switches needed? I have never setup a sudo rule or sudoers file. Thanks!

Your users should run commands like this:
sudo -u ihsadmin /opt/ihs/bin/some_command
User_Alias   USERS = user01, user02
USERS        ALL = (ihsadmin) /opt/ihs/bin/
