6 node.module node_access_needs_rebuild($rebuild = NULL)
7 node.module node_access_needs_rebuild($rebuild = NULL)

Flag / unflag the node access grants for rebuilding, or read the current value of the flag.

When the flag is set, a message is displayed to users with 'access administration pages' permission, pointing to the 'rebuild' confirm form. This can be used as an alternative to direct node_access_rebuild calls, allowing administrators to decide when they want to perform the actual (possibly time consuming) rebuild. When unsure the current user is an administrator, node_access_rebuild should be used instead.


$rebuild: (Optional) The boolean value to be written.

Return value

(If no value was provided for $rebuild) The current value of the flag.
