Accessing Repository Permissions via REST or JavaScript

Nicholas Krantz (132) | asked Aug 15 '16, 1:08 p.m.
 I'm working on a script to export all users from RQM into CSV through JavaScript. I have a lot of details already but I'm looking for a way to get the Repository Permsissions (JazzUsers, JazzGuests, JazzAdmins, JazzProjectAdmins) of the users using REST/OSLC/Javascript. If anyone has an idea or has done this before, any input is helpful.

- Do you have local user administration or are you LDAP integrated (or other SSO mechanism)
- what application server are you using? WAS, Liberty, Tomcat?

Guido is right. The repository role is determined by the application server during the log on process. Unless a user is logged on, you will not know what role she has from the application point of view.

 Yes, I have local admin rights but I think the repotool does exactly what I need to do

In general RQM users are the users who are present in the JTS server, you can try use the below command and export users into CSV

repotools-jts.bat -exportUsers toFile=C:\test.csv repositoryURL=https://hostame:9443/jts

Using repotools-jts has its uses, but only if one is able to access the machine hosting the application.  The above is client based and can give more information ( i.e. project/team roles )
