API Doc: modX::hasPermission()

boolean hasPermission (string|array $pm)


Deny the user access if they don't have the permission 'edit_chunk' in their loaded Policies.

$pm = 'edit_chunk';
if (!$modx->hasPermission($pm)) {
    die('Access Denied!');

It's also possible to check if the user has multiple permissions, like 'edit_chunk' and 'edit_template'. Like;

$pm = array('edit_chunk' => true, 'edit_template' => true);
if (!$modx->hasPermission($pm)) {
    die ('Access Denied!');
