need to add a new user to sudo

My sudo looks like this

##
# User Alias Entries
User_Alias ADMIN = root, h10267, h82683, h80613, h103881 , h31119

##
# Override built-in defaults
Defaults syslog=auth
Defaults:ADMIN !lecture

ADMIN ALL = NOPASSWD: ALL
ucmdb ALL= NOPASSWD: /usr/local/sbin/ucmdb.exe, /bin/cat, /bin/ls
edmz ALL= NOPASSWD:/bin/grep, /usr/bin/passwd

i need to add the user h31119 to sudo file with the following rights :

sudo acces to pidadm and piqadm for h31119

pidadm and piqadm are folders at /usr

any help would be appreciated

Other question is a duplicate, so please delete it.

sudo is to get you access as a super user or some other user or commands that need root access.  What you are trying to do is getting access to certain folders.  It is not a sudo related issue.  You need access permissions /ACLs, etc. to do accomplish this.

The user "h31119" is in ADMIN, and ADMIN has all sudo access already.

Rightly pointed out.  So you need to issue command like


sudo cd /usr/pidadm

Open in new window



But you should not use sudo for this.  You should allow access like:

setfacl -m u:h31119:rx /usr/{pidadm,piqadm}

Open in new window


This is the right way to handle your problem.
