Gets a list of identities to use for administrator authentication.

The default implementation returns a list with a single element for the super user.

authority :

A PolkitBackendInteractiveAuthority.

caller :

The subject that is inquiring whether subject is authorized.

subject :

The subject we are about to authenticate for.

user_for_subject :

The user of the subject we are about to authenticate for.

action_id :

The action we are about to authenticate for.

details :

Details about the action.

Returns :

A list of PolkitIdentities. Free each element g_object_unref(), then free the list with g_list_free().
