Remove ALL permissions for particular folder - HTTP request to SharePoint

Hello guys!

I am trying to find a way how to properly use HTTP request to SharePoint in order to remove permissions to particular folder. My goal is to remove at once permissions given to multiple users in the past first and then set new ones.

 

I managed to add permissions with HTTP request - i will do that with my excel sheet list. I managed to remove permissions for particular users (with their IDs/emails) - BUT i do not want to do that one by one (user) - i just want to do it for all users who were given permissions in the past, remove all of them at once (besides Owners). Then i will give new permissions.

 

Is there any particular way how to do it in general for all users for particular folder in one step? If not, is there another way? For example - can i list users who have permission for the folder, then extract email/id and remove all of them with apply to each?

 

Note: i do not want to work with groups, i want to work with users.

 

THANKS in advance!

Hi @Rejdy ,

 

Given that this focuses more on the usage of the SharePoint REST API, I would recommend you reaching out to the SharePoint Community forum for further guidance.

Nevertheless, I found this documentation on the subject that might be able to help you move forward!
