Change SharePoint Permission on Folder question


Is there a way to change/grant permissions to all the contents of a folder and not just the folder itself when we use the "Change SharePoint permission" action?



SharePoint permission management works in a bit different way. The action can grant permission only to a given object (in this case it is a folder). Then, if the items of that folder inherit permissions from their parent object (the folder), the user will have the same permissions for them too. But, if the permission inheritance is broken, i.e. an item has unique permissions, you have either to grant permission to it separately or delete unique permissions. Please check the permissions inheritance of the problem items:

  1. Open item information and go to managing access:

  2. Open advanced settings:

  3. Delete unique permissions for the item:
