  Im working on creating a C#.Net application which integrates RAM with TFS using REST API. I use the REST  urls to get specific details. Such as, this url "http://server:port/ram/internal/communities" returns the list of the communities present in RAM. My requirement is to know the url used to get the list of communities according to specific user. In RAM, specific user has access to specific communities. I want to get those specific community details for the user who is authenticated. 



EDIT: Removed OSLC. We are using REST APIs.

Note that http://server:port/ram/internal/communities is not part of the OSLC Asset specification. It's an internal URL that should not be used except by RAM itself.

With regards to your question about a REST call to determine if a specific user has access to specific communities, the answer is no. This is an administration function and even the RAM Java client API doesn't have that capability although I believe there is an enhancement request on to be considered in the future.

As Eric commented earlier, the REST calls you are using are internal API calls and you may use them but they are not supported and may change in the future. Although we encourage REST calls through the OSLC specification... and is the direction we want our users to move in...  this is still underway and not yet complete. "Communities" is very RAM specific and thus only "internal" API is available that is used by RAM itself. Feel free to use at your own risk.
