auths man page

User Commands                                            auths(1)

     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-

     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  profiles 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
     authorization names in tester01.

     The following exit values are returned:

     0        Successful completion.
