Indicates whether the NIS map in the attached zone is readable.


bool IsReadable {get;}

Property value

Returns true if the map object is readable by the user, or false if the map object is not readable.


This property returns a value of true if the user accessing the map entry object in Active Directory has sufficient permissions to read the entry properties.


The following code sample illustrates using this property in a script:

'Specify the zone you want to work with
set objZone = cims.GetZoneByPath("LDAP://CN=offshore,CN=unix,DC=quantum,DC=net")
'Create the Store object
Set store = CreateObject("Centrify.DirectControl.Nis.Store")
'Attach to the target zone
'Provide the path to the zone and username and password.
store.Attach objZone.ADsPath, "tae.parker", "9days^"
'Open the generic map type named "Workstations IDs"
Set map ="Workstations IDs")
'Check whether the map is readable
if not map.IsReadable then
   wScript.Echo “No read permission. Quitting application ...”
end if
