Reading Effective Permissions on Tags for a set of Windows Users

Is there any way to determine the effective permissions a user has for a given tag using the PI-SDK or AF-SDK?  For example, I have a list of Window Users and would like know what access each user has for a particular PI tag.  I don’t see any method in the PI-SDK documentation that reads PI permissions given a username other than the user you’re logged in as. 

 

 

 

Windows provides something like the screenshot below to determine effective permissions on files.  Instead of doing this for a file, I’d like to do it for a PI Tag and multiple Windows Users.  Is this possible given PI’s security model?
