SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We have a site named 'DistrictAccess' with a document library under it. In that document library we have many folders. I need to be able to stop inheritance on the 'Document' and devise a script to set/reset permissions on each folder.

Seems like everything I've tried will not allow me to break inheritance on the folders so I can assign custom permissions.

So this is what I have:

DistrictAccess
     Documents
          Folder1
          Folder2
          etc....

Can anyone set me in the right direction?

Are you trying in SharePoint online or on premise? Have you written code to break inheritance in event receivers or some thing else –  Unnie Apr 22 at 15:55
    
Have you tried breaking inheritance on the list itself? –  Cthulhubutt Apr 22 at 16:33
    
And what is your preferred method? Workflow? Javascript? Event Receiver? –  PirateEric Apr 22 at 17:40
