correct, they can only lower the priority. IMO this is a bug, as they should be allowed to increase it up to zero again. Only the positive range should be limited to operator staff. I can't find the issue in issuzilla for now, but I remember speaking with Chris about it.

What you can do, is to allow:

$ sudo qalter -p ...


Create a dedicated user for this purpose, who is an operator. Specify:

Cmnd_Alias SGECOMMANDS = /usr/sge/bin/lx24-amd64/qalter -p -[0-9]* [0-9]*

and they can run only this -p option with sudo with these option. If you want to allow also a positive range: [-]*[0-9]* [0-9]*
