Set unique permission for multiple folders



I have a challenge to implement somehow.


Request is to create a specific folder structure and then break the permission and set on each folder unique folder permissions.

Some additional SharePoint permission groups are created as well (not point of this question right now).



00 Definition

01 ProjMgtm

02 Products

03 Delivery

04 Support

05 Externals



I have the following permission group structure:

  • "siteName" Manager (the default one)
  • "siteName" Members (the default one)
  • "siteName" Visitors (the default one)
  • "siteName" Department1 Members
  • "siteName" Department2 Members
  • "siteName" External Members


Permission which should be set:

02 ProductsFullControlContribute ContributeContribute read only
03 DeliveryFullControlContribute Contribute read only
05 ExternalsFullControlContribute  Contributeread only


I thought about defining a JSON structure to define on which folder which permission group should be set.

How would you structure the JSON or how would you implement that with Flow? It should (needs) to be Flow or LogicApps.

so my idea would be to loop over the JSON structure, break permission and set the defined groups.


This is not a one time action, the structure will be created on multiple sites (even with site provisioning).


Not sure how I should start, at the moment...

Appreciate inputs.
