https://apiX.successfactors.com/odata/v2/UserPermissions?

The below error is returned.

{
"error": {
"code": "COE_ENTITY_NOT_FOUND"
"message": {
"lang": "en-US"
"value": "invalid entity (or function) name: UserPermissions"
}

 

Cause

This API entity cannot be directly consumed and has to be called from the Odata User entity.

Resolution

userPermissions entity cannot be accessed directly.

It has to bind data record of a User and then expand further to fetch the corresponding user's permission.

The usage is shown below with an example:

https://apiX.successfactors.com/odata/v2/User('avikas')?$expand=userPermissionsNav

Here, avikas is the name of a valid user in the Successfactors system.
