I was looking at the JSOM documentation, but couldn't find a nice way to spin through all site collection and sites to show a user what they have read access to. Is this possible using JSOM and a SharePoint hosted app?

Here is the code:

I tried to pass a client context with the URL but it doesn't seem to return anything.

'use strict';

var context = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
var user = context.get_web().get_currentUser();
var web = context.get_web().get_webs();

(function () {

    // This code runs when the DOM is ready and creates a context object which is 
    // needed to use the SharePoint object model
    $(document).ready(function () {
        getUserName();
        getWebSite();
    });

    // This function prepares, loads, and then executes a SharePoint query to get 
    // the current users information
    function getUserName() {
        context.load(user);
        context.executeQueryAsync(onGetUserNameSuccess, onGetUserNameFail);
    }

    function getWebSite() {
        context.load(web);
        context.executeQueryAsync(onGetWebSuccess,onGetWebFail);
    }

    // This function is executed if the above call is successful
    // It replaces the contents of the 'message' element with the user name
    function onGetUserNameSuccess() {
        $('#message').text('Hello ' + user.get_title().split(',')[1] + '!');
    }

    // This function is executed if the above call fails
    function onGetUserNameFail(sender, args) {
        alert('Failed to get user name. Error:' + args.get_message());
    }

    function onGetWebSuccess(){
        //for (var i = 0; i < web.get_count(); i++) {
        //  alert(web.itemAt(i).get_title());
        //}

        var div = $('#listofsites');

        $('#listofsites').html('<p>Webs loaded!</p>');
        $('#listofsites').append('<p>Count: ' + web.get_count() + '</p>');
        div.append('<p>' + web.get_areItemsAvailable() + '</p>');
        for (var i = 0; i < web.get_count(); i++){
            div.append('<p>Site Title: ' + web.itemAt(i).get_title() + '</p>');
        }
    }

    function onGetWebFail(sender, args) {
        alert('Failed to get web. Error:' + args.get_message());
    }

})();

    Not possible. If you need to use JS I would suggest using the Search Rest API – Derek Gusoff Oct 15 '14 at 1:56

Not sure what you are trying to do here, since you have not actually opened a web. Maybe you have that code elsewhere.

Try this out for loading a context:

var oWeb;
var clientContext;
var oList;

.
.
.
clientContext = new SP.ClientContext();
oWeb = clientcontext.get_web();
clientContext.load(oWeb);
//leverage the oWeb to call your onGetWebSuccess()...

//rest of this is for others who need to do an actual query
oList = oWeb.get_lists().getByTitle("Items");
var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
camlQuery.set_viewXml("<View></View>");  //add your CAML here...you don't need it tho
var collItems = oList.getItems(camlQuery);
clientContext.load(collItems)

If I understand your question correctly, you could have a look at SP.Web.getSubwebsForCurrentUser Method (sp.js). It will return a collection of child sites of the current site based on the specified query.

For more detail, have a look on this MSDN reference.

    This only shows subwebs for a given site collection. The question involves getting all site collections and sites – Robert Lindgren Aug 6 '15 at 8:42
  • True. I missed the all site collections part and I probably should have mentioned that it would take some futher development, like an recursive method to retrieve all the subwebs of the entire site collection. – Anders Nielsen Aug 6 '15 at 9:00

If I got your requirement correctly, then following solution should accomplish your goal.

Spin throw site: Just make a GET request to the following URL. It will provide you all sub-sites under it.

/_api/web/webs?$select=Url

Response will be

{
  "d": {
    "results": [
      {
        "__metadata": {
          "id": "https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/Actionspace/_api/Web",
          "uri": "https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/Actionspace/_api/Web",
          "type": "SP.Web"
        },
        "Url": "https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/Actionspace"
      },
      {
        "__metadata": {
          "id": "https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/blogTest/_api/Web",
          "uri": "https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/blogTest/_api/Web",
          "type": "SP.Web"
        },
        "Url": "https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/blogTest"
      }
    ]
  }
}

Now loop through the d.results and make a GET request to following URL. It will provide you the currents user's Groups. From Groups, you will be able to see which permission this user has in this site.

/_api/web/CurrentUser?$expand=groups

Response will be

{
  "d": {
    "__metadata": {
      "id": "https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/_api/Web/GetUserById(11)",
      "uri": "https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/_api/Web/GetUserById(11)",
      "type": "SP.User"
    },
    "Groups": {
      "results": [
