newgroups Token

This token is the replacement for the groups token. Notice that praudit does not distinguish between the two tokens, as both token IDs are labelled groups when ASCII output is displayed.

The newgroups token records the groups entries from the process's credential. The newgroups token has two fixed fields: a token ID field that identifies this as a newgroups token, and a count that represents the number of groups contained in this audit record. The remainder of the token is composed of zero or more group entries. Figure A-16 shows a newgroups token.

Note -

The newgroups token is output only when the audit policy group is active. See "The auditconfig Command" for more information.
