Which API end point to check if a user has create issue or add comment in a project

Hi, I am trying to get a true or false return for a user if they have CREATE_ISSUE permission in a project.

I've tried endpoint but I cannot figure out what I need to add as a body or add to the end of the url to get the permission for a particular username.  The username would be an email address.


I also tried,CREATE_ISSUES

but this is only returns results for my permission.


Many thanks

You can look into this endpoint for find user with permission. However, take note that you will need to pass an accountId and not username as username are deprecated on cloud. If you want to use an email address, then you will need to have a sort of lookup table where your script or program needs to refer to and get the necessary accountId of a particular user. I believe that should help you know if a user has such a permission or not.

Thanks Prince, this worked.  However, it would be nice if it returned true for false if a user has CREATE_ISSUES permission.  Instead it details all the permission  user has.  Unless I am formulating the call incorrectly.


You should format the response in your own way that it returns true or false. I believe false response should be when the payload returns an empty list or no value at all. The true response returns a mapping of the data content.
