AUTHS(1) User Commands AUTHS(1)


auths - print authorizations granted to a user


auths [ user ]...


The auths command prints on standard output the authorizations 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. Authorizations are
represented by fully-qualified names, which identify the organization
that created the authorization and the functionality that it controls.
Following the Java convention, the hierarchical components of an
authorization are separated by dots (.), starting with the reverse order
Internet domain name of the creating organization, and ending with the
specific function within a class of authorizations.

An asterisk (*) indicates all authorizations in a class.

A user's authorizations are looked up in user_attr(5) and in the
/etc/security/policy.conf file (see policy.conf(5)). Authorizations may
be specified directly in user_attr(5) or indirectly through prof_attr(5).
Authorizations may also be assigned to every user in the system directly
as default authorizations or indirectly as default profiles in the
/etc/security/policy.conf file.


Example 1: Sample output

The auths output has the following form:

example% auths tester01 tester02
tester01 :,
tester02 : solaris.system.*

Notice that there is no space after the comma separating the
authorization names in tester01.


The following exit values are returned:

Successful completion.
