NAME

       ausearch_add_item - build up search rule

SYNOPSIS

       #include <auparse.h>

       int  ausearch_add_item(auparse_state_t  *au, const char *field, const char *op, const char
       *value, ausearch_rule_t how);

DESCRIPTION

       ausearch_add_item adds one search condition to the current audit  search  expression.  The
       search  conditions  can  then  be  used  to  scan logs, files, or buffers for something of
       interest. The field value is the field name that the value will be  checked  for.  The  op
       variable describes what kind of check is to be done. Legal op values are:

              exists
                      just check that a field name exists

              =
                      locate  the field name and check that the value associated with it is equal
                     to the value given in this rule.

              !=
                      locate the field name and check that the value associated with  it  is  NOT
                     equal to the value given in this rule.

       The  value  parameter  is  compared to the uninterpreted field value. If you are trying to
       match against a field who's type  is  AUPARSE_TYPE_ESCAPED,  you  will  want  to  use  the
       ausearch_add_interpreted_item() function instead.

       The  how  value  determines  how  this  search  condition  will affect the existing search
       expression if one is already defined. The possible values are:

              AUSEARCH_RULE_CLEAR
                     Clear the current search expression,  if  any,  and  use  only  this  search
                     condition.

              AUSEARCH_RULE_OR
                     If  a  search  expression  E  is  already  configured,  replace  it by (E ||
                     this_search_condition).

              AUSEARCH_RULE_AND
                     If a search expression  E  is  already  configured,  replace  it  by  (E  &&
                     this_search_condition).

RETURN VALUE

       Returns -1 if an error occurs; otherwise, 0 for success.
