TRUSTEE info  Overview  Group

The TRUSTEE structure identifies a user account, group account, or a logon account for a program such as a Windows NT service. The structure can use a name or a security identifier (SID) to identify the trustee.

Access control functions, such as SetEntriesInAcl and GetExplicitEntriesFromAcl, use this structure to identify the logon account associated with the access-control or audit-control information in an EXPLICIT_ACCESS structure.

typedef struct _TRUSTEE


    PTRUSTEE                    pMultipleTrustee;

    MULTIPLE_TRUSTEE_OPERATION  MultipleTrusteeOperation;

    TRUSTEE_FORM                TrusteeForm;

    TRUSTEE_TYPE                TrusteeType;

    LPTSTR                      ptstrName;




Pointer to a TRUSTEE structure that identifies a server account that can impersonate the user identified by the ptstrName member. Windows NT does not currently support this functionality; therefore, this member must be NULL.
Specifies a value from the MULTIPLE_TRUSTEE_OPERATION enumeration type. Currently, this member must be NO_MULTIPLE_TRUSTEE.
Specifies a value from the TRUSTEE_FORM enumeration type that indicates whether the trustee is identified by name or by a SID.
Specifies a value from the TRUSTEE_TYPE enumeration type that indicates whether the trustee is a user account, a group account, or the account type is unknown.
If TrusteeForm is TRUSTEE_IS_NAME, this member is a pointer to a null-terminated string that contains the name of the trustee.

If TrusteeForm is TRUSTEE_IS_SID, this member is a pointer to the SID of the trustee.


A trustee name can have any of the following formats:

A trustee SID can be any user or group SID. It can also be any of the universal, well-known SIDs. For more information, see Security Identifiers (SIDs).
