We want to create document libaries from previously stored templates or from new. When a library is created in a site it inherits the permissions. Is it possible to break inheritance when library is created and secondly, define new groups and permissions for the library.

UPDATE: Different permissions need to be set for libaries that contain certain content types.

Can this be achieved through a SPD workflow?

You can use a Site Workflow which handles every list creation and do all the staff that you want to do.

  • Hi I've just updated the question. Which action removes the permissions on an item thats just been created? Mar 5, 2015 at 15:43

When you create the Library at the end of that you can break inheritance and apply the unique permission.
