Caller

Caller — Represents a process requesting a mechanism to do something.

Description

This class is used to represent a caller in another process that is calling into a mechanism to make the mechanism do something.

Details

PolKitCaller

typedef struct _PolKitCaller PolKitCaller;

Objects of this class are used to record information about a caller in another process.


polkit_caller_new ()

PolKitCaller *      polkit_caller_new                   (void);

Creates a new PolKitCaller object.

Returns :

the new object

polkit_caller_ref ()

PolKitCaller *      polkit_caller_ref                   (PolKitCaller *caller);

The caller object

pid :

UNIX process id

Returns :

TRUE only if the value validated and was set

polkit_bool_t       polkit_caller_set_selinux_context   (PolKitCaller *caller,
                                                         const char *selinux_context);

Set the callers SELinux security context.

caller :

The caller object

session :

a session object

Returns :

TRUE only if the value validated and was set
