How to iterate through an array and grant access to folders?

I'm getting an input for a list of countries (say) from Forms and I wish to use that list and dynamically grant access to folder with those country names. Is there an automated way of doing it? I'm currently creating a long list of if-else statements and manually entering folder IDs there.

Hi @gauravsbhardwaj 


You could either use a list to store the countries and paths and perform a filter or simply create an array in your powerautomate with countries and paths, i.e.



"france":"/shared docs/france",

"germany":"/shared docs/germany",

"uk":"/shared docs/great britain",

"USA":"/shared docs/US"



You could then retrieve the path by country key.
