void
krb5_appdefault_string(krb5_context context, const char *appname, krb5_realm realm, const char *option, const char *def_val, char **ret_val);

Description

These functions get application defaults from the appdefaults section of the krb5.conf(5) configuration file. These defaults can be specified per application, and/or per realm.

These values will be looked for in krb5.conf(5), in order of descending importance.

[appdefaults] 
	appname = { 
		realm = { 
			option = value 
		} 
	} 
	appname = { 
		option = value 
	} 
	realm = { 
		option = value 
	} 
	option = value

appname

is the name of the application, and

realm

is the realm name. If the realm is omitted it will not be used for resolving values.

def_val

is the value to return if no value is found in krb5.conf(5).
