// Get the GUID of the current user.
WhoAmIRequest whoAmI = new WhoAmIRequest();
Guid userLoggedId =
Console.WriteLine("User logged: " + userLoggedId);

// Check if this user has prvReadPOAA.
RetrieveUserPrivilegesRequest userPrivilegesRequest =
    new RetrieveUserPrivilegesRequest();
userPrivilegesRequest.UserId = userLoggedId;
RetrieveUserPrivilegesResponse userPrivilegesResponse =

// Fixed the GUID for prvReadPOAA.
Guid prvReadPOAA = new Guid("{68564CD5-2B2E-11DF-80A6-00137299E1C2}");

if (userPrivilegesResponse.RolePrivileges.Any(r => r.PrivilegeId.Equals(prvReadPOAA)))
    Console.WriteLine("This user DOES have prvReadPOAA");
    Console.WriteLine("This user DOESN'T have prvReadPOAA");
