auth_enumerate(1) Obtain list of accounts


#include <courierauth.h>

auth_enumerate(int (*callback_func) (const char *, uid_t, gid_t, const char *, const char *, const char *, void *), void *callback_arg);



enumerates all of the available accounts. auth_enumerate repeatedly calls callback_func, once for each account. callback_func receives the following arguments:

• Account name.

• Account's numeric userid.

• Account's numeric groupid.

• Account's home directory.

• Account's mailbox (if defined, may be NULL, which indicates the default mailbox location).

• Account's options string (if defined, may be NULL)

callback_arg, verbatim.

After invoking callback_func for the last account, auth_enumerate invokes callback_func one more time with all parameters set to NULL or 0.

If auth_enumerate encounters an error it will terminate without calling callback_func with all NULL or 0 parameters. This can be used to determine whether a partial list of accounts was received.


Some back-end Courier authentication modules do not implement account enumeration, so this function may not be available in all configurations.
