set item level security in SharePoint

A flow should be able to change the permission of an item in a SharePoint List/document library; this is a very popular pattern in Sharepoint workflows

Hi all,


The following two actions should now be available:

1. Grant access to an item or a folder

2. Stop sharing an item or folder


Please check out these new actions in the SharePoint connector and let us know if you have any feedback!

@Stander Our actions only support modern permissions that accrues value across the board with the Sharing scenarios. We do not have any plans to support classic SharePoint groups and permission levels in Flows.

@Chakkaradeep your link to sharepoint modern permissions says that SharePoint groups still need to be used for visitor access and also in some other scenarios.....traditional SharePoint groups must be included

 in this functionality or we are stuck with SharePoint designer forever more

Unfortunatley Plumsail data/requests are stored in the EU, which is unacceptable to our situation.
