Content Editor Web Part and the Users and Groups Web Service

  Asked By: Anish    Date: Oct 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 7670

I'm trying to get the Content Editor Web Part (CEWP) religion by
experimenting with the Users and Groups Web Service. In particular,
I've been playing with the GetRoleCollectionFromUser method to return
a given users' security roles. This works fine when I pass in a
username but I am trying to do this for the current user. I'm
struggling to determine a full proof, cross browser, default security
settings solution to the problem. Everything I have read so far
suggests that this is impossible thru the browser's mechanisms. I am
wondering if there was some SharePoint specific way of accomplishing
this that I am missing. In particular I have tried passing in null
and the empty string to the web service method and they yield the
predicatable SOAP Fault.
