NAME

audit_getloginuid - Get a program's login session id value

SYNOPSIS

#include <libaudit.h>
 
uin32_t audit_get_session(void);
 

DESCRIPTION

This function returns the task's session id attribute.
 

RETURN VALUE

This function returns the session id value if it was set. It will return a -1 if the session id is unset. However, since uint32_t is an unsigned type, you will see the converted value instead of -1.
 

ERRORS

This function returns -2 on failure. Additionally, in the event of a real error, errno would be set. The function can set errno based on failures of open, read, or strtoul.
