ABL Reference
Handle Attributes and Methods Reference : DOMAIN-DESCRIPTION attribute


The description of the domain in which the user represented by the client-principal object was authenticated. If not specified, the AVM returns a blank ("") character string.
Data type: CHARACTER
Access: Readable/Writeable
Applies to: Client-principal object handle
If not already assigned, during any OpenEdge-performed user authentication operation, OpenEdge assigns the value of this attribute (if any) from the domain configuration used to authenticate the asserted identity before sealing the client-principal object.
Once the client-principal object is sealed, this attribute is read-only, and attempting to write to it raises a run-time error.
