GetOriginatorToken Method

Retrieves the security token associated with the process that initiated the operation.

Syntax

cbregistry.getOriginatorToken([callback])

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for this method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

This method can be called within events fired for registry operations to retrieve the security token associated with the process that initiated the operation. If the query fails, this method returns INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE.

The security token returned by this method can be passed to the Windows API's GetTokenInformation function to obtain more information about the process.

Important: When applications are finished using the returned security token, they must close it using the Windows API's CloseHandle function.

Note: This method can only be called within events.
