bitbucket server add-on authorization

I'm working on a bitbucket server add-on using the Java API.  I need to display certain information to regular users (such as information about hooks) which is only normally available to admins.    It seems that add-ons use the privileges of the user that is accessing the add-on (please correct me if I am wrong).

My question is how to accomplish this task?  Can i give elevated privileges to an add-on?  Is there some other way to accomplish this?

thanks,

brian

I was able to use the SecurityService class to get admin privs and perform the operations i needed.
