I have a workflow that sets unique permissions throughout. I have a request to give a new person access to all items within the list. I have updated the workflow to give this user permissions to any newly submitted items, but how can I grant access to all exisiting items in the list without doing it item by item? There are way too many items to do it one by one.
Create a Site Workflow and Use the Query List to get the ID's and put them in a collection and use the For Each action to set the permissions on Items.
Then Run the Site Workflow to set the permissions on the Items.
Good day Rebecca,
You can also use a SharePoint group on the list and then with the SharePoint web service add a users to the SharePoint group. The group will have access to everything and you just add people when required.
Let me know if you need more detail.
