BuildExplicitAccessWithNameA function

The BuildExplicitAccessWithName function initializes an EXPLICIT_ACCESS structure with data specified by the caller. The trustee is identified by a name string.

Syntax

void BuildExplicitAccessWithNameA(
  PEXPLICIT_ACCESS_A pExplicitAccess,
  LPSTR              pTrusteeName,
  DWORD              AccessPermissions,
  ACCESS_MODE        AccessMode,
  DWORD              Inheritance
);

Parameters

pExplicitAccess

A pointer to an EXPLICIT_ACCESS structure to initialize. The BuildExplicitAccessWithName function does not allocate any memory. This parameter cannot be NULL.

pTrusteeName

A pointer to a null-terminated string that contains the name of the trustee for the ptstrName member of the TRUSTEE structure. The BuildExplicitAccessWithName function sets the other members of the TRUSTEE structure as follows.

Value Meaning
pMultipleTrustee
NULL
MultipleTrusteeOperation
NO_MULTIPLE_TRUSTEE
TrusteeForm
TRUSTEE_IS_NAME
TrusteeType
TRUSTEE_IS_UNKNOWN

AccessPermissions

Specifies an access mask for the grfAccessPermissions member of the EXPLICIT_ACCESS structure. The mask is a set of bit flags that use the ACCESS_MASK format to specify the access rights that an ACE allows, denies, or audits for the trustee. The functions that use the EXPLICIT_ACCESS structure do not convert, interpret, or validate the bits in this mask.

AccessMode

Specifies an access mode for the grfAccessMode member of the EXPLICIT_ACCESS structure. The access mode indicates whether the access control entry (ACE) allows, denies, or audits the specified rights. For a discretionary access control list (DACL), this parameter can be one of the values from the ACCESS_MODE enumeration. For a system access control list (SACL), this parameter can be a combination of ACCESS_MODE values.

Inheritance

Specifies an inheritance type for the grfInheritance member of the EXPLICIT_ACCESS structure. This value is a set of bit flags that determine whether other containers or objects can inherit the ACE from the primary object to which the ACL is attached. The value of this member corresponds to the inheritance portion (low-order byte) of the AceFlags member of the ACE_HEADER structure. This parameter can be NO_INHERITANCE to indicate that the ACE is not inheritable, or it can be a combination of the following values.

Value Meaning
CONTAINER_INHERIT_ACE
Other containers that are contained by the primary object inherit the ACE.
INHERIT_ONLY_ACE
The ACE does not apply to the primary object to which the ACL is attached, but objects contained by the primary object inherit the ACE.
NO_PROPAGATE_INHERIT_ACE
The OBJECT_INHERIT_ACE and CONTAINER_INHERIT_ACE flags are not propagated to an inherited ACE.
OBJECT_INHERIT_ACE
Noncontainer objects contained by the primary object inherit the ACE.
SUB_CONTAINERS_AND_OBJECTS_INHERIT
Both containers and noncontainer objects that are contained by the primary object inherit the ACE. This flag corresponds to the combination of the CONTAINER_INHERIT_ACE and OBJECT_INHERIT_ACE flags.
SUB_CONTAINERS_ONLY_INHERIT
Other containers that are contained by the primary object inherit the ACE. This flag corresponds to the combination of the CONTAINER_INHERIT_ACE and INHERIT_ONLY_ACE flags.
SUB_OBJECTS_ONLY_INHERIT
Noncontainer objects contained by the primary object inherit the ACE. This flag corresponds to the combination of the OBJECT_INHERIT_ACE and INHERIT_ONLY_ACE flags.

Return Value

This function does not return a value.
