Im trying to Set item permissions for an item.
I don't know the usernames until run time, so I am using a collection variable. in the 'Users' field of the 'Set item permissions'.
1) should this rather be a text variable?
2) what should the syntax of the field be?
So far I have been able to put the 'Set item permissions' inside a foreach loop (for each user) this slows down the execution of the processes.
colUserNames = user1; user2; user3;
Thanks for responding.
I have tried a text variable with aliases separated by ; this does not work.
What I find really strange is that if I paste the value of the text string into the field and then save, it resolves ok as expected but at run time it fails to resolve.
I have tried a collection as well,
The error I get in the logs is
for a string of user1;user2; ( I have replaced actual user names )
No user was found with the specified username 'user1'. Permissions have not been set for this principal.
No user was found with the specified username 'user2'. Permissions have not been set for this principal.
I am 99% there,
These two articles are the keys
1) coerce the text into a "people or group" using set variable, I then had "user1;user2;" as a plain text coerced into a people text;
2) the syntax for user1 is different depending on your versions of thing
I no longer have to iterate through each individual user.
Thanks for all you help
