REST API call to get Confluence space permissions?

I think the answer to this is no, but is there a REST API call I can make to retrieve the top-level space permissions for a given space?

I've been asked to tighten up our exit procedure so that spaces aren't left dying because there is nobody with admin access on a space after people leave.

Hello, @Philip Colmer !
You are right on this matter. The REST API does not support the request you are looking for.
There are, in fact, some threads in our Developer Community about it. There they also proposed solutions to the situation. Take a look:

Let us hear from you, Philip! Looking forward to your reply.

Hey all,

Does anybody happen to know if this is still true as of today? /api/space/SPACE_KEY?expand=permissions works on a Confluence Cloud instance but not on my Confluence Server 7.1


using 7.3.5, no its still not fixed. 

Apparently you need to write your own java plugin.
