is it possible to access the groups/users/roles which are referred by the securitylevel of an issue via the REST API? I have seen that the security level is exposed in the issue response of the REST API. However, if I use rest/api/2/securitylevel/<id>, the response is very sparse. Even the other way around, i.e., accessing the roles via the REST API apparantly does not give me the permissionlevels in the individual projects.
Perhaps there is another way for retrieving the members in the securitylevels?
Thanks in advanved!
No. The security doesn't work that way, it's all about "can this user see that issue", so it starts with the issue and checks the user access. There;s nothing that lists users that have permission, and there's even less when you're out of context and don't have a specific issue.
So there's certainly nothing exposed by REST to get lists of users.
I think, as admin you can check a lot, if the admin himself is always a member of the security level.
If I want check, if a certain assignee is included in a security level, I can search by using the issue navigator:
level = "Visible for project users only" and assignee = <username>
