NAME
       auths - print authorizations granted to a user

SYNOPSIS
       auths [ user ]...

DESCRIPTION
       The auths command prints on standard output the authorizations that you or the optionally-
       specified user or role have been granted. Authorizations are rights that  are  checked  by
       certain privileged programs to determine whether a user may execute restricted functional-
       ity.

       Each user may have zero or more authorizations. Authorizations are represented  by  fully-
       qualified  names,  which  identify the organization that created the authorization and the
       functionality that it controls. Following the Java convention, the hierarchical components
       of  an  authorization  are separated by dots (.), starting with the reverse order Internet
       domain name of the creating organization, and ending with the specific function	within	a
       class of authorizations.

       An asterisk (*) indicates all authorizations in a class.

       A user's authorizations are looked up in user_attr(4) and in the /etc/security/policy.conf
       file (see policy.conf(4)). Authorizations may be specified  directly  in  user_attr(4)  or
       indirectly  through prof_attr(4). Authorizations may also be assigned to every user in the
       system directly as default  authorizations  or  indirectly  as  default	profiles  in  the
       /etc/security/policy.conf file.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1 Sample output

       The auths output has the following form:

	 example% auths tester01 tester02
	 tester01 : solaris.system.date,solaris.jobs.admin
	 tester02 : solaris.system.*
	 example%

       Notice  that  there  is	no  space  after  the comma separating the authorization names in
       tester01.

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

       0    Successful completion.

       1    An error occurred.
