Find user has role

I have tried $roleService->getRoleAssignmentsForUser($user); but it returns an empty list.

How do I get what roles the user has?

you probably (hopefully), just need to set second argument to true to also take inherited roles into account, otherwise your asking about roles assigned to the user (directly), as opposed to it's user group (inherited, and normal best practice on modeling your roles assignments).

However it seems this was never added to interface (API), we should most likely do that:

If you don't have time to wait for this fix to reach a release, you can do this also by iterating users UserGroups and load their Roles.

I had to use a legacy callback for this, as the 5.x stack didn't return all the data I needed:

I also didn't test whether inherited roles are returned, as Andre suggested.

Thank you I have applied the fix.
