userattr(1)

Name

userattr - print attribute value granted to a user or role

Synopsis

userattr [-v] attribute_name [user]

Description

The userattr command prints on standard output the first value found for the attribute attribute_name. If user is not specified, the user is taken from the real user ID of the process. Attribute names are those found defined in user_attr(5) and prof_attr(5). Use the profiles(1) command for the profiles assigned to a user. Use the auths(1) command for the authorizations assigned to a user. The order of search is the user's user_attr entry followed by the user's profiles.

If the attribute, attribute_name, is not assigned to the user, and for any errors, userattr returns a non-zero exit code. Otherwise, userattr returns a zero exit code.

The –v option additionally prints where the attribute was found.
