Configure authentication for Mageia tools


This tool is present in the Mageia Control Center under the tab Security

It allows to give the regular users the needed rights to accomplish tasks usually done by the administrator.

Most of the tools available in the Mageia Control Center are displayed in the left side of the window (see the screenshot above) and for each tool, a drop down list gives the choice between:

  • No password: The tool is launched without asking any password.

  • User password: The user password is asked before the tool launching.

  • Root password: the root password is asked before the tool launching

The default values depend of the chosen security level. See in the same MCC tab, the tool "Configure system security, permissions and audit".

You can start this tool from the command line, by typing draksec as root.
