getsebool: get SELinux boolean value(s)

NAME

getsebool - get SELinux boolean value(s)

SYNOPSIS

getsebool [-a] [boolean]

DESCRIPTION

getsebool reports where a particular SELinux boolean or all SELinux booleans are on or off In certain situations a boolean can be in one state with a pending change to the other state. getsebool will report this as a pending change. The pending value indicates the value that will be applied upon the next boolean commit.

The setting of boolean values occurs in two stages; first the pending value is changed, then the booleans are committed, causing their active values to become their pending values. This allows a group of booleans to be changed in a single transaction, by setting all of their pending values as desired and then committing once.

OPTIONS

-a
Show all SELinux booleans.
