Thanks. If I may just hijack this thread: is it possible to whitelist
groups instead of individual users to use virsh/virtual manager?

I know sasl only deals with the authentication stuff, buy here you are
also authorizing in the whitelist. If this authorization could go
further to allow ipa groups, that would be ideal from an admin point
of view ;-)
