I don't have a solution, but the reason this doesn't exist is because of the scale implications. Imagine if your sever has 1000s of users and 100s of projects, perhaps lots of project roles. Then, which specific JIRA permission are you interested in? Browse issues? Create? The report you'd generate would be giant.

I'm not sure what you mean by old data, but the permissions are definitely accurate in the database. But since there are so many possibilities this isn't feasible.

It's also very hard in SQL as well.  Imagine that you're just looking at a single permission in one project, such as "log work". 

That line will give you a rule for access, but that access could be

  • A group (you'll need to read the users out of the groups)
  • A user
  • A role (you'll need to read the project header for users and groups in the roles)
  • Assignee (you'll need to read each issue affected, or make the assumption that the users who match the "can be assigned issues" rule count)
  • Reporter (Similar to assignee)
  • Group picker (you'll need to read the field, then the groups from the issues)
  • And so on

In other words, this report could not only be long, but horribly complex to generate, and SQL is probably a terrible way to do it because you'll need to rebuild all the permissions logic inside your queries.
