AUTHS(1)AUTHS(1)NAMEauths - print authorizations granted to a user
SYNOPSISauths [ user ]...
The auths command prints on standard output the authorizations that you
or the optionally-specified user or role have been granted. Authoriza‐
tions 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 rep‐
resented by fully-qualified names, which identify the organization that
created the authorization and the functionality that it controls. Fol‐
lowing the Java convention, the hierarchical components of an autho‐
rization 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(4) and in the
/etc/security/policy.conf file (see policy.conf(4)). Authorizations may
be specified directly in user_attr(4) or indirectly through
prof_attr(4). Authorizations may also be assigned to every user in the
system directly as default authorizations or indirectly as default pro‐
files in the /etc/security/policy.conf file.
Example 1 Sample output
The auths output has the following form:
example% auths tester01 tester02
tester01 : solaris.system.date,solaris.jobs.admin
tester02 : solaris.system.*
Notice that there is no space after the comma separating the authoriza‐
tion names in tester01.
The following exit values are returned:
An error occurred.
