Set Item Permissions not Changing all permissions

Question asked by sharepointsean on Jun 12, 2018

Looking for some advice from the community here on the Set Item Permissions action in the List and Libraries area in Nintex Workflow for SharePoint 2013.

I am using two Run If Actions for determining what is the Meeting Type that is being used when the end user creates the Document Set for the review documents. As seen in the second picture this is how I have setup the conditions when configuring the Run If action. I have also set the Run If action to run as the Workflow Owner.



My issue is that the workflow runs when a new document set is created as configured, but it does not change the permissions as expected of configured.

When configuring the User Permissions in the Set Item Permissions action does it matter what order you have the permissions configured? As an example in the screen shot below I have the permissions for certain groups removed and then I am giving other users or group permissions.


Or should I break the Set Item Permissions actions out, where I remove the permissions first in a separate Set Item Permissions action, and then have a second Set Item Permissions to add the permissions back against the Document Set?

Could it also be that the Set Item Permission works differently when being run against a Document Set versus a file in a list or library?


If someone can help me out here it would be greatly appreciated.
