sasl_server_init - Man Page

Cyrus SASL documentation


#include <sasl/sasl.h>

int sasl_server_init(const sasl_callback_t *callbacks,
                     const char *appname);


int sasl_server_init(const sasl_callback_t *callbacks,
const char *appname);

sasl_server_init() initializes SASL.  It  must  be  called before  any  calls to sasl_server_start, and only once per process.  This call initializes all SASL mechanism drivers (e.g.  authentication mechanisms). These are usually found in the /usr/lib/sasl2 directory but the directory  may  be overridden  with the SASL_PATH environment variable (or at compile time).

  • callbacks – specifies the base callbacks for all client connections. See the sasl_callbacks(3) man page for more information.
  • appname – is the name of the application.  It  is  used to find the default configuration file.

Return Value

SASL  callback  functions should return SASL return codes. See sasl.h for a complete list. SASL_OK indicates success.

Other return codes indicate errors and should either be handled or the authentication session should be quit.
