SharePoint Item level permission is not been carrying to Folder and Library permission SharePoint 2013


  • Good Day

    I have a document library with multiple folders containing documents.

    • Security "Group A" views all content.
    • Security "Group B" gets granted permission from the users in Group A by running a workflow.


    When users in "group A" runs the workflow on the document level the permission is not carried to the folder and library level.

    So users in "Group B" are unable to view the folder or library in which the document is located.

  • Hi,

    in your workflow for granting permission to group B, have you given "View / Read Only" permission on all parent level of file?

    i.e. Document Lib Root (View) --> Folder & Sub-folders (View) --> document (desired permission).

    Then only group B users will able to see documents for which they have permissions.
