Dbus API bindings for dnfdaemon

Synopsis

Dbus methods and arguments. Generated from dbus XMLs.

Description

Note: While most of the following methods can be invoked successfully by a regular user, authentication by an administrative user is required for some of them (e.g. Goal.do_transaction(), Repo.confirm_key(), Repo.enable(), Repo.disable()). This authentication is managed by calling CheckAuthorization() method of the org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Authority Polkit D-Bus interface. The AllowUserInteraction flag is set for this call, indicating that if an authentication agent is available, the call is blocked while the user is prompted to authenticate. A hardcoded timeout of 2 minutes is set for the user interaction.

Interfaces

org.rpm.dnf.v0.Goal interface

interface org.rpm.dnf.v0.Goal
method resolve(a{sv} options) (a(sssa{sv}a{sv}) transaction_items, u result)
Arguments:
  • options (a{sv}) – an array of key/value pairs to modify dependency resolving

Returns:
  • transaction_items (a(sssa{sv}a{sv})) – array of (object_type, action, reason, {transaction_item_attributes}, {object}) tuples. object_type is one of libdnf5::transaction::TransactionItemType, action is one of libdnf5::transaction::TransactionItemAction, reason is one of libdnf5::transaction::TransactionItemReason enums. Each of these enums are represented as strings using corresponding libdnf5::transaction::*_to_string() methods. transaction_item_attributes is a map {attribute: value}. Currently “reason_change_group_id” attribute is used for target group id in case the action is ReasonChange and the reason Group, and “replaces” containing a vector of packages ids being replaced by this item. Finally the object is a map {attribute: value} and represents (according to object_type) package, group, environment, or module. These package attributes are returned: “name”, “epoch”, “version”, “release”, “arch”, “repo_id”, “from_repo_id”, “package_size”, “install_size”, “evr”, and “reason”. For groups the object contains “groupid” and “name” attributes.
