API call that returns results of permissions granted to a role/team

This idea is useful to anyone looking to find out what permissions are associated with a role, specially auditors. They need to make sure there is separation of duties between Deploy Engineer and Design Engineer Roles. 

This is in reference to this IBM case TS015958548 created on April 10 2024.

This could even be part of the Reporting option in UCD which is kind of lacking in its usefulness.

    Hi, our development team would like your feedback on this question if you can provide it. In the UI, the Reports->Environment Security feature might provide the information requested in this RFE. Can you comment on whether or not this would meet your needs? Thank you for your input on this question.

    Thank you for submitting this idea. Your comments in the support case provide more clarity in what we believe you are asking for with this idea. Here was your comment in the case:


    We have auditor in the company that need to do UCD API calls in order to read data in UCD related to what types of access users have in UCD.

    We tested creating a new team for them and giving 'View' access to all objects, however, it doesn't allow them to view applications for example. It only worked when I added their team to an application, then they were able to do an API call. But since we have over 250 applications, this would not be feasible to add their team to all apps.

    The other solution was to add their group to the system team, with that they were able to do API calls. But that is giving them too much permissions.

    I would like to know if there is an easy way to provide them with the proper level of access so they can do their API calls to read data.
