Get Permissions

Use this call to get a collection with all the permissions of the server. Each permission will have the roles it applies to.

You may use this information to change your UI according to the permissions a user has (hiding what he can’t do for example).

Example call:

    "msg": "method",
    "method": "permissions/get",
    "id": "42",
    "params": []


    "msg": "result",
    "id": "42",
    "result": [
        ... // permissions

The meta object is defined as:

  • revision: The revision of the permission
