Grant Created SharePoint Folder Access to a specific list of people

I have a automation that creates a folder in SharePoint and uploads files to it. I want the created folder to be locked for everyone except a list of specified users. Is there a way to do this with power automate?


Another option is hiding the folder for everyone except a list of users. Can this be done with power automate?

Hello @BlueCatOwner01 ,

it's doable in Power Automate, you have to:

  1. remove all the permissions from the folder
  2. assign back permissions to the users who should see the folder
