Function: integer llReturnObjectsByID( list objects );

If the script is owned by an agent, PERMISSION_RETURN_OBJECTS may be granted by the owner. If the script is owned by a group, this permission may be granted by an agent belonging to the group's "Owners" role.
Returns an integer that is the number of objects successfully returned to their owners or an ERR_* flag.

• list objects list of object uuids (keys)

To run this function the script must request the PERMISSION_RETURN_OBJECTS permission with llRequestPermissions. If the return value is negative, it represents an error flag.


Script Owner and Scope

If the script is owned by an estate owner or manager, this function works for objects located on any parcel in the region. Otherwise, the script can return objects located over land owned by the owner of the script.

As a security measure, parcel owner, estate owner, and estate managers can not have their objects returned by this method, except when the object returns itself.


Throttled at max parcel land impact capacity region-wide per hour.

Error Flags Description
ERR_GENERIC -1 A nebulous and inexplicable error, nothing is known about it.
ERR_PARCEL_PERMISSIONS -2 Permission lacked to perform task on specified parcel.
ERR_MALFORMED_PARAMS -3 Parameters are malformed.
ERR_RUNTIME_PERMISSIONS -4 Script lacks the runtime permission to perform the requested task.
ERR_THROTTLED -5 Task has been throttled. Try again later.


  • Once the PERMISSION_RETURN_OBJECTS permission is granted there is no way to revoke it except from inside the script (for example, with a new llRequestPermissions call) or the script is reset or deleted.
  • While anyone may grant PERMISSION_RETURN_OBJECTS this function will only work properly if one of the following is true:
    • The land is owned by the prim owner and this permission has been granted by the land owner.
    • The land is group owned and this permission has been granted by a group member filling the group "Owners" role.
  • Objects owned by other groups will be returned to their previous owner if the object is transferable, deleted otherwise.
