Class RootPermission

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable


    public class RootPermission
    extends UserPermission

    The RootPermission class represents the permissions for the specified user of an object contained in the root directory structure.

    An object on the root directory structure can set the data authority or the object authority. The data authority can be set to one of the following values: *none, *RWX, RW, *RX, *WX, *R, *W, *X, *EXCLUDE, or *AUTL. Use getDataAuthority() to display the current values and the setDataAuthority() to set the data authority to one of the valid values. Use commit() from the Permission class to send the changes to the system.

    The object authority can be set to one or more of the following values: alter, existence, management, or reference. Use the appropriate set methods (setAlter(), setExistence(), setManagement(), or setReference()) to turn the value on or off. After all the values are set, use the commit() method from the Permissions class to send the changes to the system.
