Get Permissions

Use this call to get a collection with all the permissions of the server. Each permission will have the roles it applies to.

You may use this information to change your UI according to the permissions a user has (hiding what he can't do for example).

Example call:

"msg": "method",
"method": "permissions/get",
"id": "42",
"params": []


"msg": "result",
"id": "42",
"result": [
... // permissions
