Manage ListItem Permissions in SP Designer Workflows


Today I'll show you how to manage List Item permissions in workflows developed in Sharepoint Designer 2013.

If you try to do this, you'll not find that in standard actions. A little bit frustrating, isn't it? But don't be disappointed!

It may be possible in older 2010 workflows. So let's take a look.

Permission actions are not available yet:

 Add an impersonation step (otherwise, permission actions will not available):

Add permission actions in that impersonation step:

For example, I have added "remove permissions" action for all users of Edit and Contribute types:

All right. Legacy 2010 workflow is ready. Now we need to run this workflow in our 2013 workflow with no parameters

to current List Item:

That's all! Make your 2013 workflows more powerful!
