Object path /
Methods dict GetProperties()
Returns all global system properties. See the
properties section for available properties.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
void SetProperty(string name, variant value)
Changes the value of the specified property. Only
properties that are listed as read-write are
changeable. On success a PropertyChanged signal
will be emitted.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
array{object,dict} GetTechnologies()
Returns a list of tuples with technology object
path and dictionary of technology properties.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
array{object,dict} GetServices()
Returns a sorted list of tuples with service
object path and dictionary of service properties.
This list will not contain sensitive information
like passphrases etc.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
object ConnectProvider(dict provider) [deprecated]
Connect to a VPN specified by the given provider
When successful this method will return the object
path of the VPN service object.
This method can also be used to connect to an
already existing VPN.
This method call will only return in case of an
error or when the service is fully connected. So
setting a longer D-Bus timeout might be a really
good idea.
When 'SessionMode' property is enabled, this method
call is disallowed.
This API is deprecated and should not be used.
The VPN configuration API is provided by ConnMan
VPN daemon and user should use that one instead.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
void RegisterAgent(object path)
Register new agent for handling user requests.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
void UnregisterAgent(object path)
Unregister an existing agent.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
void RegisterCounter(object path, uint32 accuracy, uint32 period) [experimental]
Register a new counter for user notifications.
The accuracy is specified in kilo-bytes and defines
a threshold for counter updates. Together with the
period value it defines how often user space needs
to be updated. The period value is in seconds.
This interface is not meant for time tracking. If
the time needs to be tracked down to the second, it
is better to have a real timer running inside the
application than using this interface.
Also getting notified for every kilo-byte is a bad
choice (even if the interface supports it). Something
like 10 kilo-byte units or better 1 mega-byte seems
to be a lot more reasonable and better for the user.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
void UnregisterCounter(object path) [experimental]
Unregister an existing counter.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
object CreateSession(dict settings, object notifier) [experimental]
Create a new session for the application. Every
application can create multiple session with
different settings. The settings are described
as part of the session interface.
The notifier allows asynchronous notification about
session specific changes. These changes can be
for online/offline state or IP address changes or
similar things the application is required to
Every application should at least create one session
to inform about its requirements and it purpose.
void DestroySession(object session) [experimental]
Remove the previously created session.
If an application exits unexpectatly the session
will be automatically destroyed.
object path, dict, fd RequestPrivateNetwork(dict options)
Request a new Private Network, which includes the
creation of a tun/tap interface, and IP
configuration, NAT and IP forwarding on that
An object path, a dictionnary and a file descriptor
with IP settings are returned.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
void ReleasePrivateNetwork(object path) [experimental]
Releases a private network.
Possible Errors: [service].Error.InvalidArguments
Signals TechnologyAdded(object path, dict properties)
Signal that is sent when a new technology is added.
It contains the object path of the technology and
also its properties.
TechnologyRemoved(object path)
Signal that is sent when a technology has been removed.
The object path is no longer accessible after this
signal and only emitted for reference.
ServicesChanged(array{object, dict}, array{object})
Signals a list of services that have been changed
via the first array. And a list of service that
have been removed via the second array.
The list of added services is sorted. The dictionary
with the properties might be empty in case none of
the properties have changed. Or only contains the
properties that have changed.
For newly added services the whole set of properties
will be present.
The list of removed services can be empty.
This signal will only be triggered when the sort
order of the service list or the number of services
changes. It will not be emitted if only a property
of the service object changes. For that it is
required to watch the PropertyChanged signal of
the service object.
PropertyChanged(string name, variant value)
This signal indicates a changed value of the given
Properties string State [readonly]
The global connection state of a system. Possible
values are "offline", "idle", "ready" and "online".
If the device is in offline mode, the value "offline"
indicates this special global state. It can also be
retrieved via the OfflineMode property, but is kept
here for consistency and to differentiate from "idle".
However when OfflineMode property is true, the State
property can still be "idle", "ready" or "online"
since it is possible by the end user to re-enable
individual technologies like WiFi and Bluetooth while
in offline mode.
The states "idle", "ready" and "online" match to
states from the services. If no service is in
either "ready" or "online" state it will indicate
the "idle" state.
If at least one service is in "ready" state and no
service is in "online" state, then it will indicate
the "ready" state.
When at least one service is in "online" state,
this property will indicate "online" as well.
boolean OfflineMode [readwrite]
The offline mode indicates the global setting for
switching all radios on or off. Changing offline mode
to true results in powering down all devices. When
leaving offline mode the individual policy of each
device decides to switch the radio back on or not.
During offline mode, it is still possible to switch
certain technologies manually back on. For example
the limited usage of WiFi or Bluetooth devices might
be allowed in some situations.
boolean SessionMode [readwrite] [experminental]
This disables the auto connect feature. It should be
enabled when the Session API is used. When SessionMode
is enabled, 'ConnectService' and 'ConnectProvider'
method calls are disallowed.
The default value is false.
