DACL for the specified object. The returned list contains both inherited and non-inherited ACEs. Returned values are decimals rather than enumeration strings.
ace (minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="*", output only)
Encapsulates the procedure's input and output data.
dacl (minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1", output only)
name (minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1", input only)
objectType (minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1", input only)
Set of bit flags that determines whether other containers or objects can inherit the ACE from the primary object to which the DACL 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 zero to indicate that the ACE is not inheritable; or it can be a combination of the values in the AceFlags table. For example:<ace> <inheritance>3</inheritance> </ace>
0x0 Default. This ACE will not be inherited by other objects. 0x1 Non-container objects contained by the primary object inherit the ACE. 0x2 Other containers contained by the primary object inherit the ACE. 0x3 Both containers and non-container objects contained by the primary object inherit the ACE. 0x4 The SUB_OBJECTS_ONLY_INHERIT and SUB_CONTAINERS_ONLY_INHERIT flags are not propagated to an inherited ACE. 0x8 The ACE does not apply to the primary object to which the DACL is attached, but objects contained by the primary object inherit the ACE. 0x10 The permission or restriction is inherited from the parent object.
Type of objects that can inherit the ACE.
Indicates whether the DACL allows or denies the specified access rights. Specifies a value from the following ACCESS_MODE enumeration.
2 Indicates an ACCESS_ALLOWED_ACE that allows the specified rights. 3 Indicates an ACCESS_DENIED_ACE that denies the specified rights.
Name of the object to update the DACL for. For Microsoft® Active Directory® objects, this would be the lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) path.
One of the object types listed in the following SE_OBJECT_TYPE table. For Active Directory objects, this should be SE_DS_OBJECT.
0 SE_UNKNOWN_OBJECT_TYPE Unknown object type. 1 SE_FILE_OBJECT
A file or directory. The name string that identifies a file or directory object can be one of the following.
- A relative path such as: Abc.dat or ..\Abc.dat.
- An absolute path such as: \Abc.dat, C:\Dir1\Abc.dat, or G:\Remotedir\Abc.dat.
- A UNC name such as \\Machinename\Sharename\Abc.dat.
- A local file system root such as \\\\.\\C:. Security set on a file system root does not persist when the system is restarted.
2 SE_SERVICE A Microsoft® Win32® service. A service object can be a local service, such as Servicename; or a remote service, such as \\Machinename\Servicename. 3 SE_PRINTER A printer. A printer object can be a local printer, such as Printername; or a remote printer, such as \\Machinename\Printername. 4 SE_REGISTRY_KEY
A registry key. A registry key object can be in the local registry, such as CLASSES_ROOT\Somepath; or in a remote registry, such as \\Machinename\CLASSES_ROOT\Somepath.
The names of registry keys must use the following literal strings to identify the predefined registry keys: CLASSES_ROOT, CURRENT_USER, MACHINE, and USERS.
5 SE_LMSHARE A network share. A share object can be local, such as sharename; or remote, such as \\machinename\sharename. 6 SE_KERNEL_OBJECT
A local kernel object. The GetSecurityInfo and SetSecurityInfo functions support all types of kernel objects. The GetNamedSecurityInfo and SetNamedSecurityInfo functions work only with the following kernel objects: semaphore, event, mutex, waitable timer, and file mapping. 7 SE_WINDOW_OBJECT A window station or desktop object on the local machine. You cannot use GetNamedSecurityInfo and SetNamedSecurityInfo with these objects because the names of window stations or desktops are not unique. 8 SE_DS_OBJECT
Microsoft®Windows® 2000: A directory service (DS) object, or a property set or property of a directory service object.
The name string for a DS object can be a UNC name such as \\tailspintoys.com\ou1\ou2\Someobject.
The name string can also be in X.500 form, such as "CN=someobject,OU=ou2,OU=ou1,DC=domain,DC=microsoft,DC=com,O=internet".
9 SE_DS_OBJECT_ALL Windows 2000: A directory service object and all of its property sets and properties. 10 SE_PROVIDER_DEFINED_OBJECT Windows 2000: A provider-defined object. 11 SE_WMIGUID_OBJECT Windows 2000: A Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) object.
String that identifies the type of object, property set, or property protected by the ACE. If this ACE is inherited, it identifies the type of object, property set, or property protected by the inherited ACE. The format varies depending on the value for trusteeForm.
Value containing standard, specific, and generic rights. These rights are used in ACEs and are the primary means of specifying the requested or granted access to an object. The permission value can be any combination of bits from the following tables. Each objectType node has different specific rights that may not be listed in the following tables.
Standard and generic permissions (ACCESS_MASK):
0x00010000L Delete access 0x00020000L Read access to the owner, group, and DACL of the security descriptor 0x00040000L Write access to the DACL 0x00080000L Write access to owner 0x00100000L Windows NT or Windows 2000: Synchronize access 0x01000000L Access system security (ACCESS_SYSTEM_SECURITY). This flag is not a typical access type. It is used to indicate access to a system access control list (SACL). This type of access requires the calling process to SE_SECURITY_NAME (Manage auditing and security log) privilege. If this flag is set in the access mask of an audit access ACE (successful or unsuccessful access), the SACL access will be audited. 0x02000000L Maximum allowed 0x10000000L Generic all 0x20000000L Generic execute 0x40000000L Generic write 0x80000000L Generic read
Active Directory permissions (ADS_RIGHTS_ENUM):
0x1 The right to create children of the object. The ObjectType member of an ACE can contain a globally unique identifier (GUID) that identifies the type of child object whose creation is being controlled. If ObjectType does not contain a GUID, the ACE controls the creation of all child object types. 0x2 The right to delete children of the object. The ObjectType member of an ACE can contain a GUID that identifies a type of child object whose deletion is being controlled. If ObjectType does not contain a GUID, the ACE controls the deletion of all child object types. 0x4 The right to list children of this object. 0x8 The right to modify the group membership of a group object. 0x10 The right to read properties of the object. The ObjectType member of an ACE can contain a GUID that identifies a property set or property. If ObjectType does not contain a GUID, the ACE controls the right to read all of the object's properties. 0x20 The right to write properties of the object. The ObjectType member of an ACE can contain a GUID that identifies a property set or property. If ObjectType does not contain a GUID, the ACE controls the right to write all of the object's properties. 0x40 The right to delete all children of this object, regardless of the permission on the children. 0x80 The right to list an object. If the user is not granted such a right, the object is hidden from the user. 0x100 The right to perform an operation controlled by an extended access right. The ObjectType member of an ACE can contain a GUID that identifies the extended right. If ObjectType does not contain a GUID, the ACE controls the right to perform all extended right operations associated with the object. 0x10000 The right to delete the object. 0x20000 The right to read information from the security descriptor of the object, not including the information in the SACL. 0x40000 The right to modify the DACL in the object's security descriptor. 0x80000 The right to assume ownership of the object. The user must be a trustee of the object. The user cannot transfer the ownership to other users. 0x100000 The right to use the object for synchronization. This enables a thread to wait until the object is in the signaled state. 0x1000000 The right to get or set the SACL in the object's security descriptor. 0x80000000 The right to read from the security descriptor, examine the object as well as its children, and read all properties. 0x40000000 The right to write all the properties and write to the DACL.
