DESCRIPTION


These functions retrieve the metadata about a specific property. They
require that the template for the property has already been located by
one of the scf_tmpl_prop_create(3SCF) suite of functions.


The scf_tmpl_prop_name() function will retrieve the property's name as
currently templated and place it in *out. The caller is responsible for
freeing the *out buffer on success.


The scf_tmpl_prop_type() function will retrieve the type of the property
as templated and place the type in out.


The scf_tmpl_prop_required() function will determine whether the property
is required in this property group and place the result of that check in
out. If required is unset, out will be the default, 0. If the property
is explicitly set to required, out will be 1.


The scf_tmpl_prop_common_name() function will retrieve the property's
localized common name as currently templated and place it in *out. A
locale (as described in setlocale(3C)) can be specified, or if the
supplied locale is NULL, the current locale will be used. If a common
name in the specified locale is not found, the function will also look
for a common name in the C locale. Some templates will not specify the
property common name. The caller is responsible for freeing the *out
buffer on success.


The scf_tmpl_prop_description() function will retrieve the property's
localized description as currently templated and place it in *out. A
locale (as described in setlocale(3C)) can be specified, or if the
supplied locale is NULL, the current locale will be used. If a
description in the specified locale is not found, the function will also
look for a description in the C locale. Some templates will not specify
the property description. The caller is responsible for freeing the *out
buffer on success.


The scf_tmpl_prop_visibility() function will retrieve the visibility of
the property as currently templated and place it in out. A property can
be SCF_TMPL_VISIBILITY_HIDDEN, SCF_TMPL_VISIBILITY_READONLY, or
SCF_TMPL_VISIBILITY_READWRITE. If the visibility is unset, this function
will return the default, SCF_TMPL_VISIBILITY_READWRITE.


The scf_tmpl_prop_cardinality() function will retrieve the minimum number
of values and maximum number of values allowed for this property and
place them in min and max, respectively. If the values are unset, the
defaults of 0 for min and UINT64_MAX for max.


The scf_values_destroy() function destroys an scf_values_t structure and
all memory associated with it.


The scf_values_t structure is populated by a number of functions. Based
on the value type, it is populated with an array of the values. It is
also always populated with an array of astring translations of those
values.

typedef struct scf_time {
int64_t t_seconds;
int32_t t_ns;
} scf_time_t;

typedef struct scf_values {
scf_type_t value_type;
char *reserved;
int value_count;
const char **values_as_astring;
union {
uint64_t *v_count;
uint8_t *v_boolean;
int64_t *v_integer;
char **v_astring;
char **v_ustring;
char **v_opaque;
scf_time_t *v_time;
} sv_data;
} scf_values_t;


The scf_tmpl_prop_internal_seps() function will retrieve the list of
internal separators as currently defined in the template. Each separator
will be a single string character in a different element of out. Some
templates will not specify any internal separators. The caller is
responsible for calling scf_values_destroy() on success.


The scf_tmpl_value_name_constraints() function will retrieve the set of
property values the property is expected to be part of. Some templates
will not specify any constraints. The caller is responsible for calling
scf_values_destroy() on success.


The scf_tmpl_value_count_range_constraints() function will retrieve the
set of defined lower and upper bounds as defined by the property template
and place them in ranges. Some templates will not specify any range
constraints.


The scf_count_ranges_t structure is populated by the
scf_tmpl_value_count_range_constraints() and
scf_tmpl_value_count_range_choices() functions.
scf_count_ranges_destroy() destroys an scf_count_ranges_t and all memory
associated with it.

typedef struct scf_count_ranges {
int scr_num_ranges;
uint64_t *scr_min;
uint64_t *scr_max;
} scf_count_ranges_t;


The scf_tmpl_value_int_range_constraints() function will retrieve the set
of defined lower and upper bounds as defined by the property template and
place them in ranges. Some templates will not specify any range
constraints.


The scf_int_ranges_t structure is populated by the
scf_tmpl_value_int_range_constraints() and
scf_tmpl_value_int_range_choices() functions. The
scf_int_ranges_destroy() function destroys an scf_int_ranges_t and all
memory associated with it.

typedef struct scf_int_ranges {
int scr_num_ranges;
int64_t *scr_min;
int64_t *scr_max;
} scf_int_ranges_t;


The scf_tmpl_value_name_choices() function will retrieve the set of
property value choices that should be offered to a user. Some templates
will not specify any choices. The caller is responsible for calling
scf_values_destroy() on success.


The scf_tmpl_value_count_range_choices() function will retrieve the set
of defined lower and upper bounds as defined by the property template and
place them in ranges. Some templates will not specify any range choices.


The scf_tmpl_value_int_range_constraints() function will retrieve the set
of defined lower and upper bounds as defined by the property template and
place them in ranges. Some templates will not specify any range
constraints.


The scf_tmpl_value_common_name() function will retrieve the value's
common name as currently templated and place it in *out. A locale (as
described in setlocale(3C)) can be specified, or if the supplied locale
is NULL, the current locale will be used. If a common name in the
specified locale is not found, the function will also look for a common
name in the C locale. Some templates will not specify the value common
name. The caller is responsible for freeing the *out buffer on success.


The scf_tmpl_value_description() function will retrieve the value's
description as currently templated and place it in *out. A locale (as
described in setlocale(3C)) can be specified, or if the supplied locale
is NULL, the current locale will be used. If a description in the
specified locale is not found, the function will also look for a
description in the C locale. Some templates will not specify the value
description. The caller is responsible for freeing the *out buffer on
success.


The scf_tmpl_value_in_constraint() function will check that the value
provided matches the constraints as defined in the property template
provided. This currently means it will determine if the value provided:

o is of the proper type for the property template defined,

o is within a range defined, if it is a numeric type, and

o is within the name constraints, if name constraints are
defined.


If the template property does not define a type, ranges will be
considered of the same type as the numeric values being checked. Some
ranges might consider the value out of constraint when tested as one
numeric type but within constraint if tested as other numeric type. Refer
to strtoull(3C) and strtoll(3C) to see the implications when retrieving
numeric values from the repository or converting strings to numeric
values in libscf(3LIB).


If errs is not NULL, an scf_tmpl_error_t will be created, populated and
added to errs in case of a constraint violation. The caller is
responsible for calling scf_tmpl_errors_destroy() to free memory
allocated for all scf_tmpl_error_t associated to errs.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, scf_tmpl_prop_name(),
scf_tmpl_prop_common_name(), scf_tmpl_prop_description(),
scf_tmpl_prop_units(), scf_tmpl_value_common_name(), and
scf_tmpl_value_description() return the length of the string written, not
including the terminating null byte. Otherwise, they return -1.


Upon successful completion, scf_tmpl_prop_type(),
scf_tmpl_prop_required(), scf_tmpl_prop_visibility(),
scf_tmpl_prop_cardinality(), scf_tmpl_prop_internal_seps(),
scf_tmpl_value_name_constraints(),

scf_tmpl_value_int_range_constraints(), scf_tmpl_value_name_choices(),
scf_tmpl_value_count_range_choices(), scf_tmpl_value_int_range_choices()
return 0. Otherwise, they return -1.


The scf_tmpl_value_in_constraint() functions returns 0 on success, 1 if
the value is not in the constraint, and -1 on failure.


Upon successful completion, scf_tmpl_visibility_to_string() returns a
string of the visibility supplied.
