In the XML-RPC API, there's a "getPermissions" method
Vector<String> getPermissions(String token, String spaceKey) - Returns a Vector of Strings representing the permissions the current user has for this space (a list of "view", "modify", "comment" and / or "admin").
But those four don't map 1-to-1 with the permissions you can set for groups or users on the Space Permissions page. Is there a way to get ALL the permissions a given user has on a given space?
For example, is there a way to check if anonymous users on a certain space have the "EDITBLOG" permission set?
With other API methods (removeAnonymousPermissionFromSpace and addAnonymousPermissionsToSpace) I'm able to add or remove anonymous permissions, but I don't see a way to check what the current anonymous permissions are at the same level of detail. If "comment" is returned by getPermissions, I know the user can post comments ... but if anonymous users can post blog entried ("EDITBLOG") nothing extra is returned in getPermissions (only "view").
