CMCIClientFT.references() - Enumerate association instances for a class
Enumerate association instances that refer to the Instance defined by
the op reference.
Arguments are the client object pointer cl, an ObjectPath object
pointer op with the reference that contains namespace and classname
components, resultClass, where if it’s not NULL is a valid class name
that is used to filter the returned set of Objects by eliminating
objects that aren’t an Instance of this Class or one of its subclasses,
role, where if it’s not NULL is a valid property name that is used to
filter the returned set of instance objects by eliminating objects that
aren’t associated to the source object by an association where the
source object plays the specified role, i.e. the name of the property
in the association class that refers to the source object has to match
the value of this parameter, flags that affect the content of the
returned class instance structures, a properties array, and rc which
returns the operation status (suppressed when NULL).
The flags argument is a bit mask that can contains the following flags
- CMPI_FLAG_IncludeQualifiers and CMPI_FLAG_IncludeClassOrigin.
When successful the CMCIClientFT.references() function returns a
pointer to a CMPIEnumeration object that contains the class association
instance objects found that match the association criteria, and sets a
successful operation status code in rc. When unsuccessful it returns a
NULL pointer and sets the operation status error code and corresponding
error string in rc.
