Flow creates folders and documents in Library - levels of permission


The flow which (I am the owner of) creates folders and documents is triggered by users who are the owners of the library, but the problem is that the Library should be visible to many other different users, but- on the level which does not allow them to rename or delete folders/documents. This should be easy to achieve by "Contribute not delete" level, but it doesn't work. It seems that my ownership of the flow does not allow other users who are not owners of the library to see the folders/documents. Does anyone know how to solve it?

I will really appreciate your suggestions.

You can use this action to provide a set of users a read access to the folders: 



For custom permissions on the folders where you are not inheriting the permissions from the site, you will have to use HTTP request to SharePoint and break inheritance, provide the new roles to users. Sample:


Hope this Helps!

Hello @yashag2255 . Thank you.

The solution was much simpler- library "versioning settings" and enabling everyone to see draft versions of the files ;D
