I have used the following guide:


to mount an SSHFS using Automount. The implementation works great. However, I need to add an option to SSHFS as defined here:


When you use SSHFS in a non-automount way, it's easy to simply add a -o option flag into the command. But with the autofs setup, it's not clear where to add in -o options.

Where do I specify SSHFS options when using Automount?

In the comma-separated list in /etc/auto.sshfs.
