  Table of Contents



C Prototype

krb5_error_code krb5_cc_next_cred(
krb5_context context,
krb5_ccache id,
krb5_cc_cursor *cursor,
krb5_creds *creds );


context (input/output) 

The context structure.

id (input/output)  

A credentials cache identifier.

cursor (input/output) 

The cursor created by krb5_cc_start_seq_get. This value is updated upon return to be used in subsequent calls to krb5_cc_next_cred. The returned credentials cache entry.

creds (output) 

The returned credentials cache entry.


This routine fetches the next entry from id, returning its values in *creds, and updates *cursor for the next request. It requires that id identifies a valid credentials cache and *cursor is a cursor returned by krb5_cc_start_seq_get or a subsequent call to krb5_cc_next_cred. The krb5_end_seq_get routine is called when no more entries are to be read.

Return Values

This routine returns the following KRB5 status code:

Error code if there are no more cache entries.
