FTAM — Use of AccessLevel Struct

  • Key: FTAM-36
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4390
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: DSTC ( Ted McFadden)
  • Summary:

    The access_rights property is defined as an AccessLevel struct. A
    client is able to query this property from a File or
    Directory. AccessLevel is defined as:

    struct AccessLevel

    { boolean read; boolean insert; boolean replace; boolean extend; boolean erase; boolean read_attr; boolean change_attr; boolean delete; }


    and represents the permissions granted to a user. In practice it is
    not always possible for a service implementation to know the values of
    all of these attributes. Unfortunately there is no way for a service
    to report if any of these values cannot be determined.

    The ftam spec should provide some means to determine the validity of
    the boolean values in this struct, or at the very least specify the
    default values for unknown members.
