Using RetrieveUserPrivileges Requests to Retrieve Privileges for a User Using Jscript and .NET in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011

This illustration shows you how to retrieve the privileges for a User (systemuser) in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 using the RetrieveUserPrivilegesRequest request.   This example will be given in SOAP (JScript) and in C# (.NET).

Ok, here is what the calls look like!
First in C#:

 RetrieveUserPrivilegesRequest req = new RetrieveUserPrivilegesRequest();
         
         //The GUID of our SystemUser / User
         req.UserId = new Guid("40AC8ED9-9A89-405F-A786-A4EF5C5319CA");
         RetrieveUserPrivilegesResponse resp = (RetrieveUserPrivilegesResponse)service.Execute(req);

         foreach (RolePrivilege priv in resp.RolePrivileges)
         {
            //can act on priv.PrivilegeId
         }

Now here is the Jscript nicely formatted by the CRM 2011 SOAP formatter. Available at: http://crm2011soap.codeplex.com/

Now in Jscript:

if (typeof (SDK) == "undefined")
   { SDK = { __namespace: true }; }
       //This will establish a more unique namespace for functions in this library. This will reduce the 
       // potential for functions to be overwritten due to a duplicate name when the library is loaded.
       SDK.SAMPLES = {
           _getServerUrl: function () {
               ///<summary>
               /// Returns the URL for the SOAP endpoint using the context information available in the form
               /// or HTML Web resource.
               ///</summary>
               var OrgServicePath = "/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc/web";
               var serverUrl = "";
               if (typeof GetGlobalContext == "function") {
                   var context = GetGlobalContext();
                   serverUrl = context.getServerUrl();
               }
               else {
                   if (typeof Xrm.Page.context == "object") {
                         serverUrl = Xrm.Page.context.getServerUrl();
                   }
                   else
                   { throw new Error("Unable to access the server URL"); }
                   }
                  if (serverUrl.match(/\/$/)) {
                       serverUrl = serverUrl.substring(0, serverUrl.length - 1);
                   } 
                   return serverUrl + OrgServicePath;
               }, 
           RetrieveUserPrivilegesRequest: function () {
               var requestMain = ""
               requestMain += "<s:Envelope xmlns:s=\"http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/\">";

           catch (e) { };
        }
        return new Error(errorMessage);
     },
 __namespace: true
};




To understand how to parse the response please review my post on using the DOM parser.
Now you can call the SDK.SAMPLES.RetrieveUserPrivilegesRequest function from your form jscript handler.  
Thats all there is to it!

I hope this helps!
