NFS4_GETFACL(1)          NFSv4 Access Control Lists          NFS4_GETFACL(1)

NAME         top

       nfs4_getfacl - get NFSv4 file/directory access control lists

SYNOPSIS         top

       nfs4_getfacl [-HR] file ...

DESCRIPTION         top

       nfs4_getfacl will display the NFSv4 Access Control List (ACL) for the
       files given as arguments, provided they are on mounted NFSv4
       filesystems which support ACLs.

       If the -H/--more-help flag is specified, nfs4_getfacl will print some
       information about NFSv4 ACLs and the fields used in ACEs.

       If the -R/--recursive flag is specified, nfs4_getfacl will list the
       NFSv4 ACLs of all files and directories recursively.

       If the -c/--omit-header flag is specified, nfs4_getfacl will not
       display the comment header (Do not print filename).

       The output format for an NFSv4 file ACL, e.g., is:

              # file: /somedir

       In the example output above, the user `' has the
       equivalent of "read" and "execute" permissions, `'
       has "read" and "write", and both `GROUP@' and `EVERYONE@' have

       The ACL listings of multiple files are separated by blank lines.

       Refer to the nfs4_acl(5) manpage for detailed information about NFSv4
       ACL terminology and syntax.
