Tools for auditing user/group permissions? (3.4.5)

Is there any good way - a built-in that I’m not aware of, a nice
external add-on, whatever - to get a readable report on all my users and
what permissions they have?

I’ve got someone noting

Ok, got it. But I still argue that either:

  1. I should be able to see any comment I have posted regardless of the
    lists I’m on, or

  2. I should not be able to post comments if I’m not privileged to see
    them.

and my boss replying:

Agreed with #2. That you can suggests that something is incorrect in the
permissions somewhere. JB should fix that.

So it seems that it’s time for me to do a full system
user(-and-thus-group) audit and figure out who can do what where (and
via what permissions grant.)

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
JB

RTx::RightsMatrix…

sMatrix.pm

Someone mentioned RTx::RightsMatrix, which I wrote, but it only gives
you the permissions for one user, group, or role at a time. I guess
it could be extended to do what you want, but depending on the
number of users, groups, queues, and custom fields, this could be
a very expensive (in terms of CPU) report.
