Verify the permission

Inside an AdminController

namespace App\Controller;

use Pimcore\Controller\UserAwareController;
use Pimcore\Controller\Traits\JsonHelperTrait;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response;
use Symfony\Component\Routing\Annotation\Route;

class AdminController extends UserAwareController
use JsonHelperTrait;
* @Route("/admin/my-admin-action")
public function myAdminAction(Request $request): Response
$pimcoreUser = $this->getPimcoreUser();

if ($pimcoreUser?->isAllowed('my_permission')) {
// ...

return $this->jsonResponse(['success' => true]);

In the frontend (bundle)

document.addEventListener(, (e) => {
if(pimcore.currentuser.permissions.indexOf("my_permission") >= 0) {
