grant access to a SharePoint group

I have a SPD2010 workflow which gave SharePoint groups access to a list item depending on a field in the form.

So if field1 = a, group A would get edit permissions. If field1 = b, then group B would get edit permissions etc.

 

How can I replicate this (easily) in PA?

You can't replicate that easily in PA, there's no special action to assign permissions to SharePoint group. You'll have to use HTTP request for that:

 

_api/lists/getByTitle('<listName>')/items(<itemID>)/roleassignments/addroleassignment(PrincipalId=<SPgroupID>,roleDefId=<roleID>)

 

So it could look like this:

The <listName> and <itemID> placeholders are clear I suppose, so for the <SPgroupID>, that can be found in the URL on the group screen.

And for the <roleID>, here's a list of the default permission IDs:

Hi, what about Document Libraries? This solution only apply to SharePoint lists, right?

As in your website always very helpful tips! Thank You Tom 🙂

I have a quick question regarding this HTTP-Request:

Is it possible to have 2 Groups in addroleassignment(PrincipalId= 'Group 1' & 'Group 2') with the same roleDefId?
