I have a workflow running on a list. When an item is changed, it needs to look for a folder in a separate document library that shares the name of the item. It then needs to update the permissions for that folder.

I am having trouble accomplishing this. I can update permissions for individual documents but I have not been able to reference the folder.

I attempted to Update List Item' in the document library and reference the list item where Name (Field) in the document library is equal to Title field in my list but I have not had any luck.

Any insight is super appreciated!


You may be disappointed.

Per my knowledge, currently, we cannot update permission of a folder using SharePoint Designer workflow.

For updating the permission of a folder, you need to edit it manually.
