confdb_object_create(3) Create a new object in the Configuration Database


#include <corosync/confdb.h>

confdb_error_t confdb_object_create(confdb_handle_t handle, unsigned int parent_object_handle, void *object_name , int object_name_len , unsignedint *object_handle );


The confdb_object_create function create a new object in the configuration database. Objects may contain other sub-objects or keys with values. On success the handle of the new object is returned in object_handle. This value should be used to refer to the object in future, eg when retrieving sub-keys or if the object is destroyed. parent_object_handle is the handle of the object that is the parent of the new object. This can be OBJECT_PARENT_HANDLE if the new object is to be a child of the top-level object. Object names are not required to be unique in the database. If you call confdb_object_create twice with the same parameters you will create two different objects with the same name but distinct object handles. You can iterate through similarly name objects using the confdb_object_find call.


This call returns the CONFDB_OK value if successful, otherwise an error is returned.


The errors are undocumented.
