List names of permissions and resource types

You can list the names of all permissions and resource types by making a GET request to the /acl/reference endpoint. These names can then be used in API calls to view effective policies for the current user.
A permission is a policy that is managed through the Adobe Admin Console, and maps to zero or more resource-type policies. A resource type is a policy that enables read, write, and/or delete capabilities for a specific type of Platform resource (such as datasets or schemas).

  -H 'x-gw-ims-org-id: {IMS_ORG}'
