Get Whether the Current User has Certain Permissions

Soap Action: ApplyItem or ApplyAML

To execute this action, you can use any of the following APIs:

  • Aras.IOM.IServerConnection.CallAction()

Since the result is returned in a simple Result tag and is not wrapped in an Item, you will not get a value if you try to use the Aras.IOM.Innovator.ApplyAML() or Aras.IOM.Item.Apply() APIs.

Input Structure:

  <Item access_type="{Permission to check for (e.g. 'can_add', 'can_update', 'can_get', 'can_delete', etc.)}"
        id="{ID of the item to check}"
        type="{Type of the item to check}" />



  • The value returned is a simple 0 or 1 indicating if the user has the permission.
  • In order to check for the can_add permission, the ID and type must refer to an ItemType item.

Example (Input):

  <Item type="Grid" id="904737F51C7644B8B64C167B08B36BB5" action="getPermissions" access_type="can_get"></Item>


Example (Result):

<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="">
