Implemented Interfaces

SecretCollection implements GDBusInterface, GInitable and GAsyncInitable.

Includes

#include <libsecret/secret.h>

Description

SecretCollection represents a collection of secret items stored in the Secret Service.

A collection can be in a locked or unlocked state. Use secret_service_lock() or secret_service_unlock() to lock or unlock the collection.

Use the SecretCollection::items property or secret_collection_get_items() to lookup the items in the collection. There may not be any items exposed when the collection is locked.

Functions

secret_collection_for_alias ()

void
secret_collection_for_alias (SecretService *service,
                             const gchar *alias,
                             SecretCollectionFlags flags,
                             GCancellable *cancellable,
                             GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
                             gpointer user_data);

Lookup which collection is assigned to this alias. Aliases help determine well known collections, such as 'default'.

If service is NULL, then secret_service_get() will be called to get the default SecretService proxy.

This method will return immediately and complete asynchronously.

Parameters

service

a secret service object.

[allow-none]

alias

the alias to lookup

 

flags

options for the collection initialization

 

cancellable

optional cancellation object.

[allow-none]

callback

called when the operation completes

SecretCollection *
secret_collection_for_alias_finish (GAsyncResult *result,
                                    GError **error);

Finish an asynchronous operation to lookup which collection is assigned to an alias.

Parameters

result

                                  GError **error);

Lookup which collection is assigned to this alias. Aliases help determine well known collections, such as 'default'.

If service is NULL, then secret_service_get_sync() will be called to get the default SecretService proxy.

This method may block and should not be used in user interface threads.

Parameters

a secret service object.

[allow-none]

alias

the alias to lookup

 

flags

options for the collection initialization

secret_collection_load_items ()

void
secret_collection_load_items (SecretCollection *self,

                              gpointer user_data);

Ensure that the SecretCollection proxy has loaded all the items present in the Secret Service. This affects the result of secret_collection_get_items().

                                     GError **error);

Complete an asynchronous operation to ensure that the SecretCollection proxy has loaded all the items present in the Secret Service.

Parameters

self

the secret collection

 

result

                                   GError **error);

Ensure that the SecretCollection proxy has loaded all the items present in the Secret Service. This affects the result of secret_collection_get_items().

For collections returned from secret_service_get_collections() the items will have already been loaded.

This method may block indefinitely and should not be used in user interface threads.

Parameters

self

the secret collection

 

cancellable

optional cancellation object

 

error

location to place an error on failure

 

Returns

whether the load was successful or not


secret_collection_create ()

void
secret_collection_create (SecretService *service,
                          const gchar *label,
                          const gchar *alias,
                          SecretCollectionCreateFlags flags,
                          GCancellable *cancellable,
                          GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
                          gpointer user_data);

Create a new collection in the secret service.

This method returns immediately and completes asynchronously. The secret service may prompt the user. secret_service_prompt() will be used to handle any prompts that are required.

An alias is a well-known tag for a collection, such as 'default' (ie: the default collection to store items in). This allows other applications to easily identify and share a collection. If you specify an alias , and a collection with that alias already exists, then a new collection will not be created. The previous one will be returned instead.

If service is NULL, then secret_service_get() will be called to get the default SecretService proxy.

Parameters

service

a secret service object.

[allow-none]

label

label for the new collection

 

alias

alias to assign to the collection.

[allow-none]

flags

currently unused

 

cancellable

optional cancellation object

 

callback

called when the operation completes

 

user_data

data to pass to the callback

 

secret_collection_create_finish ()

SecretCollection *
secret_collection_create_finish (GAsyncResult *result,
                                 GError **error);

Finish operation to create a new collection in the secret service.

Parameters

result

the asynchronous result passed to the callback

 

error

location to place an error on failure

 

Returns

the new collection, which should be unreferenced with g_object_unref().
