SharePoint REST API to retrieve ACLs of a SharePoint object RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a requirement to retrieve Access Control List details of a particular SharePoint object(site, list or list item). We came across an article which talks about Role Definitions and Role Assignments which control the user access to SharePoint objects. We also found another article which has details of the REST APIs to retrieve Role Assignments and Role Definitions. We tried retrieving Role Assignments for a Site using

    GET <Site_URL>/_api/web/roleassignments?$expand=Member/users,RoleDefinitionBindings 

    REST API. The response contains the SharePoint Groups and Users and their RoleDefinitionBindings. 

    We wanted to know if there is any other way to retrieve Access Control List details of a SharePoint object using REST API?

    Any leads on this will be appreciated.
