Report Folder Permissions

I would like to programmatically get to the folder permissions where dashboards and reports are stored.

I can't find an API, and when using Data Loader, can't find a table that says this folder has these users/groups with permission.

 

This would save me a LOT of time. Any ideas?

 

Thx in advance.

Access to FolderShare is limited to the Metadata API. You could pull a retrieve() call on the FolderShare object. You have to specify the names of the folders to retrieve in the Folder metadata, and you cannot specify a wildcard. You need to be using the v28.0 version of the tools to have access to this.

Another reason I guess to dive into the metadata API. Thanks.
