auths(1)                         User Commands                        auths(1)

       auths - print authorizations granted to a user

       auths [ user ...]

       The auths command prints on standard output the authorizations that you
       or the optionally-specified user or role have been granted.  Authoriza-
       tions  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. Authorizations are rep-
       resented by fully-qualified names, which identify the organization that
       created the authorization and the functionality that it controls.  Fol-
       lowing  the  Java  convention, the hierarchical components of an autho-
       rization are separated by dots (.), starting  with  the  reverse  order
       Internet  domain name of the creating organization, and ending with the
       specific function within a class of authorizations.

       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 pro-
       files 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 authoriza-
       tion names in tester01.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0        Successful completion.

       1        An error occurred.
