INTERFACE LEVEL


Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI).

PARAMETERS


cr
pointer to the user credential structure


uid, ruid, euid, suid
new user id, real, effective and saved user id


gid, rgid, egid, sgid
new group id, real, effective and saved group id


ngroups
number of groups in the group array


gids
pointer to array of new groups


DESCRIPTION


The user credential is a shared, read-only, ref-counted data structure.
Its actual size and layout are subject to change. The functions described
in this page allow the programmer to retrieve fields from the structure
and to initialize newly allocated credential structures.


crgetuid(), crgetruid(), and crgetsuid() return, respectively, the
effective, real, and saved user id from the user credential pointed to by
cr.


crgetgid(), crgetrgid(), and crgetsgid() return, respectively, the
effective, real, and saved group id from the user credential pointed to
by cr.


crgetzoneid() returns the zone id from the user credential pointed to by
cr.


crgetgroups() returns the group list of the user credential pointed to by
cr.


crgetngroups() returns the number of groups in the user credential
pointed to by cr.


crsetresuid() sets the real, effective and saved user id. All but one can
be specified as -1, which causes the original value not to change.


crsetresgid() sets the real, effective and saved group id. All but one
can be specified as -1, which causes the original value not to change.


crsetugid() initializes the real, effective and saved user id all to uid.
It initializes the real, effective, and saved group id all to gid.


crsetgroups() sets the number of groups in the user credential to ngroups
and copies the groups from gids to the user credential. If ngroups is 0,
gids need not point to valid storage.


It is an error to call this any of the crset*() functions on a user
credential structure that was newly allocated.

RETURN VALUES


The crget*() functions return the requested information.


The crset*id() functions return 0 on success and -1 if any of the
specified ids are invalid. The functions might cause a system panic if
called on a user credential structure that is referenced by other parts
of the system.

CONTEXT


These functions can be called from user and kernel contexts.
