Set read permission on a specific item in a list with Web Request Action

Guys , I need to add read permission for a user in a workflow. the user is initiator of a workflow in another list, and during the workflow, an item will be created on the second list (which is for reporting purposes) that the initiator is not supposed to have full read access.


I know that this kinda could be created via the "Advanced>Item Level Permission" on the reporting list, but because of logical reasons, the user should not even has "Create Item" access on the reporting list (stop user from manually create reports!) and because of this, the workflow has to be run as Site Owner user, which makes the "Item Level Feature" set by list setting useless (items are created by my user instead of the initiators and therefor they cannot see items they have created)


I have used "CALL WEB SERVICE" action to set permissions on different lists before, but this one has to be happen on a single Item on a list, not the whole list.


then My only option seems to be using "Web Request" with SharePoint RESTAPI.


Please help me configure this action, since there is no example on the nintex forums.


here's a screenshot of what that I've tried with no luck:
