GetInheritanceSourceA function (aclapi.h)
This version of this function is not supported. The wide character version of this function, GetInheritanceSourceW, is supported.
DWORD GetInheritanceSourceA( [in] LPSTR pObjectName, [in] SE_OBJECT_TYPE ObjectType, [in] SECURITY_INFORMATION SecurityInfo, [in] BOOL Container, [in, optional] GUID **pObjectClassGuids, [in] DWORD GuidCount, [in] PACL pAcl, [in, optional] PFN_OBJECT_MGR_FUNCTS pfnArray, [in] PGENERIC_MAPPING pGenericMapping, [out] PINHERITED_FROMA pInheritArray );
A pointer to the name of the object that uses the ACL to be checked.
The type of object indicated by pObjectName. The possible values are SE_FILE_OBJECT, SE_REGISTRY_KEY, SE_DS_OBJECT, and SE_DS_OBJECT_ALL.
The type of ACL used with the object. The possible values are DACL_SECURITY_INFORMATION or SACL_SECURITY_INFORMATION.
TRUE if the object is a container object or FALSE if the object is a leaf object. Note that the only leaf object is SE_FILE_OBJECT.
[in, optional] pObjectClassGuids
Optional list of GUIDs that identify the object types or names associated with pObjectName. This may be NULL if the object manager only supports one object class or has no GUID associated with the object class.
Number of GUIDs pointed to by pObjectClassGuids.
The ACL for the object.
[in, optional] pfnArray
Reserved. Set this parameter to NULL.
The mapping of generic rights to specific rights for the object.
A pointer to an array of INHERITED_FROM structures that the GetInheritanceSource function fills with the inheritance information. The caller must allocate enough memory for an entry for each ACE in the ACL.
If the function succeeds, the function returns ERROR_SUCCESS.
If the function fails, it returns a nonzero error code defined in WinError.h.
The GetInheritanceSource function allocates memory for the names returned in the INHERITED_FROM structure. When the function has finished using this memory, the calling program must free it by calling FreeInheritedFromArray. Note that the caller must provide memory for the array itself. If the caller allocated the memory, the caller must free that memory after calling FreeInheritedFromArray.
This function does not handle race conditions. If your thread calls this function at the approximate time that another thread changes the object's security descriptor, then this function could fail.
The aclapi.h header defines GetInheritanceSource as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors.
