RtlAddAccessAllowedAce function

The RtlAddAccessAllowedAce routine adds an access-allowed access control entry (ACE) to an access control list (ACL). The access is granted to the specified security identifier (SID).

Syntax

NTSYSAPI NTSTATUS RtlAddAccessAllowedAce(
  PACL        Acl,
  ULONG       AceRevision,
  ACCESS_MASK AccessMask,
  PSID        Sid
);

Parameters

Acl

Pointer to a caller-allocated buffer containing the ACL to be modified. RtlAddAccessAllowedAce adds an access-allowed ACE to the end of this ACL. The ACE is in the form of an ACCESS_ALLOWED_ACE structure.

AceRevision

ACL revision level of the ACE to be added. Windows version requirments are the following:

Value Meaning
ACL_REVISION
The revision level valid on all Windows versions.
ACL_REVISION_DS
The revision level valid starting with Windows 2000.
Note AceRevision must be ACL_REVISION_DS if the ACL in Acl contains an object-specific ACE.

AccessMask

Bitmask of one or more ACCESS_MASK flags specifying the access rights to be granted to the specified SID. For more information, see the description of the DesiredAccess parameter of ZwCreateFile.

Sid

Pointer to the SID structure representing a user, group, or logon account that is being granted access.

Return Value

RtlAddAccessAllowedAce can return one of the following values:

Return code Description
STATUS_SUCCESS
The ACE was successfully added.
STATUS_ALLOTTED_SPACE_EXCEEDED
A new ACE does not fit into the ACL. A larger ACL buffer is required. See RtlCreateAcl for information about calculating the size of an ACL.
STATUS_INVALID_ACL
The specified ACL is not properly formed.
STATUS_INVALID_SID
The specified SID structure is not structurally valid.
STATUS_REVISION_MISMATCH
The specified revision is not known or is not compatible with that of the ACL.
