RegistryAuditRule RegistryAuditRule RegistryAuditRule

A RegistryAuditRule that specifies the user to search for, and a set of inheritance and propagation flags that a matching rule, if found, must be compatible with. Specifies the rights to remove from the compatible rule, if found.


true if a compatible rule is found; otherwise, false.



The current RegistrySecurity is searched for an audit rule that has the same user as rule. If no such rule is found, no action is taken, and the method returns false. If matching rules are found, their inheritance and compatibility flags are checked for compatibility with the flags specified in rule. If no compatible rule is found, no action is taken, and the method returns false. If a rule with compatible flags is found, the rights specified in rule are removed from the compatible rule, and the method returns true. If rule specifies rights not contained in the compatible rule, no action is taken with respect to those rights. If all rights are removed from the compatible rule, the entire rule is removed from the current RegistrySecurity object.
