get_role_assignments

Use the get_role_assignments command to check Active Directory and return a Tcl list of role assignments defined within the currently selected zone. If executed in a script, this command does not output its list to stdout, and no output appears in the shell where the script is executed. Use list_role_assignments to output the list to stdout.

If you do not specify an option, the command returns the current users and groups in the zone with a role assignment.

You can only use the get_role_assignments command if the currently selected zone is a classic4 or hierarchical zone. The command does not work in other types of zones.
