hey Igor, there's no REST endpoint available to get plan permissions in Bamboo. However, you can do this from the database using the following SELECT query:

 select AE.TYPE,
from BUILD B
and B.FULL_KEY = '<PLAN_KEY>';

Please replace <PLAN_KEY> with the actual plan key.

Let me give you an example. I have granted the following permissions to my plan:

  • Plan admin to user brosa.
  • View access to the bamboo-users group.
  • View access to logged in users.
  • View access to anonymous users.

This is how it looks like when I run that SQL statement:

| type | user_or_group_or_role | permission_level |

| PRINCIPAL | brosa | 2 |
| PRINCIPAL | brosa | 1 |
| PRINCIPAL | brosa | 16 |
| PRINCIPAL | brosa | 128 |
| PRINCIPAL | brosa | 64 |
| GROUP_PRINCIPAL | bamboo-users | 1 |

Following the example above, we have the following types:

  • PRINCIPAL (user)

The following user_or_group_or_role:

  • username
  • group name
  • logged in users
  • anonymous access

Finally, the following permission_levels:

  • 1: View
  • 2: Edit
  • 64: Build
  • 128: Clone
  • 16: Admin

By the way, what I mentioned above is for Bamboo < 6.2 (e.g. 5.10, 5.13, 5.15, 6.1, etc). Multiple changes have been introduced to Bamboo 6.2 in terms of permissions (as seen here:, including REST endpoints to query plan permissions.

For example, you can get a list of users that have been granted access to a specific plan using the following REST endpoint:

  • http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/permissions/plan/<PLAN_KEY>/users

You can also use the following to get a list of groups with access to a particular plan:

  • http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/permissions/plan/<PLAN_KEY>/groups
