Add multiple users to SharePoint Group with Contribute Access

I have a flow that creates a Sharepoint folder in a document library.

I need to be able to then automatically assign contribute permissions to a set of users added in a form from a previous process.

 

Should the form ask for the list of users as emails?  userid's?  Does it matter?

 

And how can i give this list of users 'Contribute' permission to this folder at the same time?

 

Adding 1 user to the group is easy. But i cannot figure out how to take the list of names/emails/id's (array?) and add them at one time to a SharePoint group.

 

Has anyone been able to figure this out?

Figured it out.  Commas fail.  Had to separate by semicolons. That seems to do the trick!

Re: Add multiple users to SharePoint Group with Contribute Access

Note:  Form is asking 'who should have contribute permission to this folder'?

User adds the list of people.  (Fname Lname or email or id?)

 

And how do i take that list of people and assign contribute permissions?
