Connection Management

The Zephyr Bluetooth stack uses an abstraction called bt_conn to represent connections to other devices. The internals of this struct are not exposed to the application, but a limited amount of information (such as the remote address) can be acquired using the bt_conn_get_info() API. Connection objects are reference counted, and the application is expected to use the bt_conn_ref() API whenever storing a connection pointer for a longer period of time, since this ensures that the object remains valid (even if the connection would get disconnected). Similarly the bt_conn_unref() API is to be used when releasing a reference to a connection.

An application may track connections by registering a bt_conn_cb struct using the bt_conn_cb_register() or c:func:BT_CONN_CB_DEFINE() APIs. This struct lets the application define callbacks for connection & disconnection events, as well as other events related to a connection such as a change in the security level or the connection parameters. When acting as a central the application will also get hold of the connection object through the return value of the bt_conn_create_le() API.

Connection callback structure.

This structure is used for tracking the state of a connection. It is registered with the help of the bt_conn_cb_register() API. It’s permissible to register multiple instances of this bt_conn_cb type, in case different modules of an application are interested in tracking the connection state. If a callback is not of interest for an instance, it may be set to NULL and will as a consequence not be used for that instance.

Public Members

void (*connected)(struct bt_conn *conn, uint8_t err)

A new connection has been established.

This callback notifies the application of a new connection. In case the err parameter is non-zero it means that the connection establishment failed.

err can mean either of the following:

Note

If the connection was established from an advertising set then the advertising set cannot be restarted directly from this callback. Instead use the connected callback of the advertising set.

Parameters
  • conn – New connection object.

  • err – HCI error. Zero for success, non-zero otherwise.

void (*disconnected)(struct bt_conn *conn, uint8_t reason)

A connection has been disconnected.

This callback notifies the application that a connection has been disconnected.

When this callback is called the stack still has one reference to the connection object. If the application in this callback tries to start either a connectable advertiser or create a new connection this might fail because there are no free connection objects available. To avoid this issue it is recommended to either start connectable advertise or create a new connection using k_work_submit or increase CONFIG_BT_MAX_CONN .

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • reason – HCI reason for the disconnection.

bool (*le_param_req)(struct bt_conn *conn, struct bt_le_conn_param *param)

LE connection parameter update request.

This callback notifies the application that a remote device is requesting to update the connection parameters. The application accepts the parameters by returning true, or rejects them by returning false. Before accepting, the application may also adjust the parameters to better suit its needs.

It is recommended for an application to have just one of these callbacks for simplicity. However, if an application registers multiple it needs to manage the potentially different requirements for each callback. Each callback gets the parameters as returned by previous callbacks, i.e. they are not necessarily the same ones as the remote originally sent.

If the application does not have this callback then the default is to accept the parameters.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • param – Proposed connection parameters.

Returns

true to accept the parameters, or false to reject them.

void (*le_param_updated)(struct bt_conn *conn, uint16_t interval, uint16_t latency, uint16_t timeout)

The parameters for an LE connection have been updated.

This callback notifies the application that the connection parameters for an LE connection have been updated.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • interval – Connection interval.

  • latency – Connection latency.

  • timeout – Connection supervision timeout.

void (*identity_resolved)(struct bt_conn *conn, const bt_addr_le_t *rpa, const bt_addr_le_t *identity)

Remote Identity Address has been resolved.

This callback notifies the application that a remote Identity Address has been resolved

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • rpa – Resolvable Private Address.

  • identity – Identity Address.

void (*security_changed)(struct bt_conn *conn, bt_security_t level, enum bt_security_err err)

The security level of a connection has changed.

This callback notifies the application that the security of a connection has changed.

The security level of the connection can either have been increased or remain unchanged. An increased security level means that the pairing procedure has been performed or the bond information from a previous connection has been applied. If the security level remains unchanged this means that the encryption key has been refreshed for the connection.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • level – New security level of the connection.

  • err – Security error. Zero for success, non-zero otherwise.

void (*remote_info_available)(struct bt_conn *conn, struct bt_conn_remote_info *remote_info)

Remote information procedures has completed.

This callback notifies the application that the remote information has been retrieved from the remote peer.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • remote_info – Connection information of remote device.

void (*le_phy_updated)(struct bt_conn *conn, struct bt_conn_le_phy_info *param)

The PHY of the connection has changed.

This callback notifies the application that the PHY of the connection has changed.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • info – Connection LE PHY information.

void (*le_data_len_updated)(struct bt_conn *conn, struct bt_conn_le_data_len_info *info)

The data length parameters of the connection has changed.

This callback notifies the application that the maximum Link Layer payload length or transmission time has changed.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • info – Connection data length information.

struct bt_conn_auth_cb
#include <conn.h>

Authenticated pairing callback structure

Public Members

enum bt_security_err (*pairing_accept)(struct bt_conn *conn, const struct bt_conn_pairing_feat *const feat)

Query to proceed incoming pairing or not.

On any incoming pairing req/rsp this callback will be called for the application to decide whether to allow for the pairing to continue.

The pairing info received from the peer is passed to assist making the decision.

As this callback is synchronous the application should return a response value immediately. Otherwise it may affect the timing during pairing. Hence, this information should not be conveyed to the user to take action.

The remaining callbacks are not affected by this, but do notice that other callbacks can be called during the pairing. Eg. if pairing_confirm is registered both will be called for Just-Works pairings.

This callback may be unregistered in which case pairing continues as if the Kconfig flag was not set.

This callback is not called for BR/EDR Secure Simple Pairing (SSP).

Parameters
  • conn – Connection where pairing is initiated.

  • feat – Pairing req/resp info.

void (*passkey_display)(struct bt_conn *conn, unsigned int passkey)

Display a passkey to the user.

When called the application is expected to display the given passkey to the user, with the expectation that the passkey will then be entered on the peer device. The passkey will be in the range of 0 - 999999, and is expected to be padded with zeroes so that six digits are always shown. E.g. the value 37 should be shown as 000037.

This callback may be set to NULL, which means that the local device lacks the ability do display a passkey. If set to non-NULL the cancel callback must also be provided, since this is the only way the application can find out that it should stop displaying the passkey.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection where pairing is currently active.

  • passkey – Passkey to show to the user.

void (*passkey_entry)(struct bt_conn *conn)

Request the user to enter a passkey.

When called the user is expected to enter a passkey. The passkey must be in the range of 0 - 999999, and should be expected to be zero-padded, as that’s how the peer device will typically be showing it (e.g. 37 would be shown as 000037).

Once the user has entered the passkey its value should be given to the stack using the bt_conn_auth_passkey_entry() API.

This callback may be set to NULL, which means that the local device lacks the ability to enter a passkey. If set to non-NULL the cancel callback must also be provided, since this is the only way the application can find out that it should stop requesting the user to enter a passkey.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection where pairing is currently active.

void (*passkey_confirm)(struct bt_conn *conn, unsigned int passkey)

Request the user to confirm a passkey.

When called the user is expected to confirm that the given passkey is also shown on the peer device.. The passkey will be in the range of 0 - 999999, and should be zero-padded to always be six digits (e.g. 37 would be shown as 000037).

Once the user has confirmed the passkey to match, the bt_conn_auth_passkey_confirm() API should be called. If the user concluded that the passkey doesn’t match the bt_conn_auth_cancel() API should be called.

This callback may be set to NULL, which means that the local device lacks the ability to confirm a passkey. If set to non-NULL the cancel callback must also be provided, since this is the only way the application can find out that it should stop requesting the user to confirm a passkey.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection where pairing is currently active.

  • passkey – Passkey to be confirmed.

void (*oob_data_request)(struct bt_conn *conn, struct bt_conn_oob_info *info)

Request the user to provide Out of Band (OOB) data.

When called the user is expected to provide OOB data. The required data are indicated by the information structure.

For LE Secure Connections OOB pairing, the user should provide local OOB data, remote OOB data or both depending on their availability. Their value should be given to the stack using the bt_le_oob_set_sc_data() API.

This callback must be set to non-NULL in order to support OOB pairing.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection where pairing is currently active.

  • info – OOB pairing information.

void (*cancel)(struct bt_conn *conn)

Cancel the ongoing user request.

This callback will be called to notify the application that it should cancel any previous user request (passkey display, entry or confirmation).

This may be set to NULL, but must always be provided whenever the passkey_display, passkey_entry passkey_confirm or pairing_confirm callback has been provided.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection where pairing is currently active.

void (*pairing_confirm)(struct bt_conn *conn)

Request confirmation for an incoming pairing.

This callback will be called to confirm an incoming pairing request where none of the other user callbacks is applicable.

If the user decides to accept the pairing the bt_conn_auth_pairing_confirm() API should be called. If the user decides to reject the pairing the bt_conn_auth_cancel() API should be called.

This callback may be set to NULL, which means that the local device lacks the ability to confirm a pairing request. If set to non-NULL the cancel callback must also be provided, since this is the only way the application can find out that it should stop requesting the user to confirm a pairing request.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection where pairing is currently active.

void (*pincode_entry)(struct bt_conn *conn, bool highsec)

Request the user to enter a passkey.

This callback will be called for a BR/EDR (Bluetooth Classic) connection where pairing is being performed. Once called the user is expected to enter a PIN code with a length between 1 and 16 digits. If the highsec parameter is set to true the PIN code must be 16 digits long.

Once entered, the PIN code should be given to the stack using the bt_conn_auth_pincode_entry() API.

This callback may be set to NULL, however in that case pairing over BR/EDR will not be possible. If provided, the cancel callback must be provided as well.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection where pairing is currently active.

  • highsec – true if 16 digit PIN is required.

void (*pairing_complete)(struct bt_conn *conn, bool bonded)

notify that pairing procedure was complete.

This callback notifies the application that the pairing procedure has been completed.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • bonded – Bond information has been distributed during the pairing procedure.

void (*pairing_failed)(struct bt_conn *conn, enum bt_security_err reason)

notify that pairing process has failed.

Parameters
  • conn – Connection object.

  • reason – Pairing failed reason

void (*bond_deleted)(uint8_t id, const bt_addr_le_t *peer)

Notify that bond has been deleted.

This callback notifies the application that the bond information for the remote peer has been deleted

Parameters
  • id – Which local identity had the bond.

  • peer – Remote address.

struct bt_br_conn_param
#include <conn.h>
