SharePoint Request - Add a SPGroup to site

I am trying to figure out how to take an existing group from a parent site, and add it to subsite permissions [with custom permissions] dynamically.

 

I have queried the group via a SharePoint request like so:

leadership_Ex.png

 

And am attempting to take the group and place it on a site like so:

leadership_Ex2.png

The body expression is as follows:  "body('action')?['Title']

 

The response I get is a 400 error which states that the parameter is not allowed.   Is it possible to add an existing group to a site?

 

parameters
Parameter name: Specified value is not supported for the parameters parameter.

Hi @illmatic,

 

Adding an existing group should be possible by using the addroleassignment method. You can refer to the principalid and set a specific role, like contribute permissions.

 

Below is an example of that:

_api/web/roleassignments/addroleassignment(principalid=@{variables('GroupID')},roledefid=1073741827)
