auths - print authorizations granted to a user


auths [ user ... ]


The auths command prints on standard output the authoriza- tions that you or the optionally-specified user or role have been granted. Authorizations are rights that are checked by certain privileged programs to determine whether a user may execute restricted functionality. Each user may have zero or more authorizations. Authoriza- tions are represented by fully-qualified names, which iden- tify the organization that created the authorization and the functionality that it controls. Following the Java conven- tion, the hierarchical components of an authorization are separated by dots (.), starting with the reverse order Internet domain name of the creating organization, and end- ing with the specific function within a class of authoriza- tions. An asterisk (*) indicates all authorizations in a class. A user's authorizations are looked up in user_attr(4). Authorizations may be specified directly in user_attr(4) or indirectly through prof_attr(4). EXAMPLES Example 1: Sample output The auths output has the following form: example% auths tester01 tester02 tester01 :, tester02 : com.sun.system.* example% EXIT STATUS The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. 1 An error occurred.
