org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.AuthenticationAgent Interface — Authentication Agent Interface

Methods

BeginAuthentication  (IN  String               action_id,
                      IN  String               message,
                      IN  String               icon_name,
                      IN  Dict<String,String>  details,
                      IN  String               cookie,
                      IN  Array<Identity>      identities)
CancelAuthentication (IN  String               cookie)
    

Description

This D-Bus interface is used for communication between the system-wide PolicyKit daemon and one or more authentication agents each running in a user session.

An authentication agent must implement this interface and register (passing the object path of the object implementing the interface) using the RegisterAuthenticationAgent() and UnregisterAuthenticationAgent() methods on the org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Authority interface of the PolicyKit daemon.

Method Details

BeginAuthentication ()

BeginAuthentication (IN  String               action_id,
                     IN  String               message,
                     IN  String               icon_name,
                     IN  Dict<String,String>  details,
                     IN  String               cookie,
                     IN  Array<Identity>      identities)
    

Called by the PolicyKit daemon when the authentication agent needs the user to authenticate as one of the identities in identities for the action with the identifier action_id.

Upon succesful authentication, the authentication agent must invoke the AuthenticationAgentResponse() method on the org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Authority interface of the PolicyKit daemon before returning.

If the user dismisses the authentication dialog, the authentication agent should return an error.

IN String action_id:

The identifier for the action that the user is authentication for.

IN String message:

The message to display to the user. This is translated into the locale passed when registering the authentication agent using RegisterAuthenticationAgent().

IN String icon_name:

The themed icon describing the action or the empty string if no icon is set.

IN Dict<String,String> details:

Details about the authentication request. This is a dictionary of key/value pairs where both key and value are strings. These strings are translated into the locale passed when registering the authentication agent using RegisterAuthenticationAgent().

IN String cookie:

A cookie identifying the authentication request.

IN Array<Identity> identities:

An array of Identity structs that the user can use for authentication.


CancelAuthentication ()

CancelAuthentication (IN  String  cookie)
    

Called by the PolicyKit daemon if the authentication agent needs to cancel an authentication dialog.

IN String cookie:

The cookie identifying the authentication request.
