Advanced Web Server (AWS) CGI security

I still have issues with CGI and with AWS in generale but this is CGI related
I know I have to user naCgiSetAccess and naCgiCheckAccess to limit function access
but I have no idea how to get caller autorization level form inside RpExternalCgi

this is what i'm doing with minimal comments.

void RpExternalCgi(void *theDataPtr, rpCgiPtr theCgiPtr) {

// GET request
// Path is "enpoint"
if (theCgiPtr->fHttpRequest == eRpCgiHttpGet && strncmp(
theCgiPtr->fPathPtr, "/enpoint", 8) == 0) {

// Set authorization.
unsigned int authLevel = // ?????? should be the caller auth level...but how to get it?
naCgiSetAccess(theDataPtr, theCgiPtr, authLevel );

// Security only administrator should be allowed.
rpPasswordState password_state = naCgiCheckAccess(theDataPtr, theCgiPtr, NASYSACC_LEVEL_ADMINISTRATOR);

if (password_state == eRpPasswordNotAuthorized) {...}else{...}
