Authselect is used to manage authentication profiles on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (and above) based distributions. It replaces the previous
authconfig utility that was used on RHEL 7.
Custom Profile[edit | edit source]
Create a new profile by running:
# authselect create-profile arc -b sssd --symlink-meta --symlink-pam
This will create a new profile using sssd as the base template. It will symlink the metadata and pam configuration files. For any files that require changing, you may then make a copy of the file and then edit it.
The new custom profile will be located at
To apply this profile, run:
# authselect select custom/user-profile
