This function takes the following parameter:


String identifying the SASL mechanism to both the server and to clients requesting the mechanism during a SASL bind


Use this function in the plug-in initialization function to register the name of a SASL mechanism supported by the plug-in. The preoperation function handling the SASL bind can then check the SASL bind mechanism name provided by the client to determine whether to attempt to handle the bind.
