Declaration [src]

GCredentials*
g_dbus_connection_get_peer_credentials (
  GDBusConnection* connection
)

Description [src]

Gets the credentials of the authenticated peer. This will always return NULL unless connection acted as a server (e.g. G_DBUS_CONNECTION_FLAGS_AUTHENTICATION_SERVER was passed) when set up and the client passed credentials as part of the authentication process.

In a message bus setup, the message bus is always the server and each application is a client. So this method will always return NULL for message bus clients.

Available since: 2.26
