List Access Folders from api

Ok, This is a bit confusing but what i am looking to do is the list say folders in the Environment section, or folders on XLR that will list what a user has access to. I know i have heard this subject but i am trying to see what i can call that will list the root level folders in Environment, InfraStructure, Configuration, Applications or XLR i have a folder per project and i want to say pass a user id in and get a list of what that user has access to.

Is there something in the API’s that would audit this information?

Again, I have heard something recent on this subject i just cannot remember what i heard or where.
