Effective policies endpoint

To view effective policies for the current user, make a POST request to the /acl/effective-policies endpoint in the Access Control API. The permissions and resource types you want to retrieve must be provided in the request payload in the form of an array. This is demonstrated in the example API call below.

API format

POST /acl/effective-policies

Request

The following requests retrieves information about the “Manage Datasets” permission and access to the “schemas” resource type for the current user.

curl -X POST \
  https://platform.adobe.io/data/foundation/access-control/acl/effective-policies \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer {ACCESS_TOKEN}' \
  -H 'x-api-key: {API_KEY}' \
  -H 'x-gw-ims-org-id: {IMS_ORG}' \
  -H 'x-sandbox-name: {SANDBOX_NAME}' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '[
    "/permissions/manage-datasets",
    "/resource-types/schemas"
  ]'
NOTE

For a complete list of permissions and resource types that can be provided in the payload array, see the appendix section on accepted permissions and resource types.

Response

A successful response returns information about the permissions and resource types provided in the request. The response includes the active permissions the current user has for the resource types specified in the request. If any permissions included in the request payload are active for the current user, the API returns returns the permission with an astrisk (*) to indicate the permission is active. Any permissions provided in the request that are not active for the user are omitted from the response payload.

{
    "policies": {
        "/resource-types/schemas": [
            "read",
            "write",
            "delete"
        ],
        "/permissions/manage-datasets": [
            "*"
        ]
    }
}
