NtEnumerateTransactionObject function

The ZwEnumerateTransactionObject routine enumerates the KTM objects on a computer.

Syntax

__kernel_entry NTSYSCALLAPI NTSTATUS NtEnumerateTransactionObject(
  HANDLE            RootObjectHandle,
  KTMOBJECT_TYPE    QueryType,
  PKTMOBJECT_CURSOR ObjectCursor,
  ULONG             ObjectCursorLength,
  PULONG            ReturnLength
);

Parameters

RootObjectHandle

A handle to a KTM object. The routine enumerates the child objects of the specified object. This parameter is optional and can be NULL. For more information about valid values for this parameter, see the table in the following Remarks section.

QueryType

A KTMOBJECT_TYPE-typed value that identifies the object type to enumerate. For more information about valid values for this parameter, see the table in the following Remarks section.

ObjectCursor

A pointer to a caller-allocated buffer that begins with a KTMOBJECT_CURSOR structure. ZwEnumerateTransactionObject uses the buffer to store the GUIDs of objects that it finds.

ObjectCursorLength

The length, in bytes, of the buffer that ObjectCursor points to.

ReturnLength

A pointer to a caller-allocated location that receives the number of bytes that ZwEnumerateTransactionObject returns in the ObjectCursor buffer, including the length of the KTMOBJECT_CURSOR structure and the length of all returned GUIDs.

Return Value

ZwEnumerateTransactionObject returns STATUS_SUCCESS if the operation succeeds but the routine has not enumerated all the objects. If there are no more objects to enumerate, the routine returns STATUS_NO_MORE_ENTRIES. Otherwise, this routine might return one of the following values:

Return code Description
STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER
The QueryType or ObjectCursorLength parameter's value is invalid.
STATUS_OBJECT_TYPE_MISMATCH
The handle that the RootObjectHandle parameter specifies is not a handle to a valid KTM object.
STATUS_INVALID_HANDLE
An object handle is invalid.
STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
The caller does not have appropriate access to the objects that are being enumerated.
 

The routine might return other NTSTATUS values.

Remarks

The following table contains the valid values for the RootObjectHandle and QueryType parameters.

QueryType parameter RootObjectHandle parameter Objects enumerated
KTMOBJECT_TRANSACTION_MANAGER NULL All transaction manager objects
KTMOBJECT_RESOURCE_MANAGER A handle to a transaction manager object.

The handle must have TRANSACTIONMANAGER_QUERY_INFORMATION access to the object.

All resource manager objects that belong to the specified transaction manager object
KTMOBJECT_ENLISTMENT A handle to a resource manager object.

The handle must have RESOURCEMANAGER_QUERY_INFORMATION access to the object.

All enlistment objects that belong to the specified resource manager object
KTMOBJECT_TRANSACTION A handle to a transaction manager object.

The handle must have TRANSACTIONMANAGER_QUERY_INFORMATION access to the object.

All transaction objects that belong to the specified transaction manager object
KTMOBJECT_TRANSACTION NULL All transaction objects that belong to all transaction manager objects
 

Most TPS components do not have to call ZwEnumerateTransactionObject, but the routine might be useful if you have to write a debugging utility.

Before your component calls ZwEnumerateTransactionObject, it must allocate and zero the buffer that ObjectCursor points to. The buffer's GUID array can be large enough to receive one or more elements.

To enumerate all of the KTM objects of the specified type, your component must call ZwEnumerateTransactionObject repeatedly until it returns STATUS_NO_MORE_ENTRIES.

Every time that the routine is called, it fills the buffer's GUID array with as many object GUIDs that will fit. After each call, your component can use the KTMOBJECT_CURSOR structure's ObjectIdCount member to determine the number of object GUIDs that the routine stored in the array.

NtEnumerateTransactionObject and ZwEnumerateTransactionObject are two versions of the same Windows Native System Services routine.

For calls from kernel-mode drivers, the NtXxx and ZwXxx versions of a Windows Native System Services routine can behave differently in the way that they handle and interpret input parameters. For more information about the relationship between the NtXxx and ZwXxx versions of a routine, see Using Nt and Zw Versions of the Native System Services Routines.

Examples

The following code example shows how to enumerate all of the transaction objects on a computer. In this example, the KTMOBJECT_CURSOR structure's GUID array contains only one element, so each call to ZwEnumerateTransactionObject returns one GUID. The routine creates a Unicode string from the GUID and displays the string.

NTSTATUS Status;
UNICODE_STRING GuidString;
KTMOBJECT_CURSOR Cursor;
ULONG ReturnedBytes;

RtlZeroMemory(&Cursor, sizeof(Cursor));

do { Status = ZwEnumerateTransactionObject( NULL, KTMOBJECT_TRANSACTION, &Cursor, sizeof(Cursor), &ReturnedBytes );

if (Status != STATUS_NO_MORE_ENTRIES) {
    RtlStringFromGUID(
                      &Cursor.ObjectIds[0],
                      &GuidString
                      );
    OutputMessage(GuidString.Buffer);
    OutputMessage(L"\r\n");
    RtlFreeUnicodeString(&GuidString);
}

} while (Status == STATUS_SUCCESS); if (Status == STATUS_NO_MORE_ENTRIES) { Status = STATUS_SUCCESS; }
