How can i remove individual or all permissions on a folder?



I am building a flow which would require to remove permission for an individual and assign it to a different person for a folder. 


What i tried was to use this :

But i get a "Folder is not supported"


After reading a lot, it seems that certainly the above just works for ListItems and Files. 


Another alternative I thought was to use the REST API: _api/lists/getByTitle('Documents')/items('item')/breakroleinheritance(copyRoleAssignments=false,clearSubscopes=true)


The above simply breaks the inheritance which can result in deleting some permssions if these are not part of the parent, but it's not a valid workaround. 


My question is if there is any way to remove individual , or all if necessary, permission on a folder via REST API maybe?
