save_to_disk

whether to persist the changes to disk

 

cancellable

a GCancellable, or NULL

 

error

location for a GError, or NULL

 

Returns

TRUE on success, FALSE on error, in which case error will be set.

gboolean
nm_remote_connection_get_unsaved (NMRemoteConnection *connection);

connection

the NMRemoteConnection

 

Returns

TRUE if the remote connection contains changes that have not been saved to disk, FALSE if the connection is the same as its on-disk representation.


nm_remote_connection_get_flags ()

NMSettingsConnectionFlags
nm_remote_connection_get_flags (NMRemoteConnection *connection);

Parameters

connection

the NMRemoteConnection

 

Returns

the flags of the connection of type NMSettingsConnectionFlags.

Since: 1.12


nm_remote_connection_get_filename ()

const char *
nm_remote_connection_get_filename (NMRemoteConnection *connection);

Parameters

connection

the NMRemoteConnection

 

Returns

file that stores the connection in case the connection is file-backed.

Since: 1.12


nm_remote_connection_get_visible ()

gboolean
nm_remote_connection_get_visible (NMRemoteConnection *connection);

Checks if the connection is visible to the current user. If the connection is not visible then it is essentially useless; it will not contain any settings, and operations such as nm_remote_connection_save() and nm_remote_connection_delete() will always fail. (NMRemoteSettings will not normally return non-visible connections to callers, but it is possible for a connection's visibility to change after you already have a reference to it.)

Parameters

connection

the NMRemoteConnection

 

Returns

TRUE if the remote connection is visible to the current user, FALSE if not.
