I am developing one SPFx web part wherein I am showing all the folders which the logged-in user has access to. And I have a couple of folders in one document library(IT Docs) and some of the folders have unique level permissions i.e. those folders are shared with some users.

I am trying to login using admin credentials who have access to all the folders. Now, I have one people picker textbox where I can type the user name, and based on the user selection I want to show all of the folders of that user.

I am able to fetch the folders using the below code:

let folders: any[] = await sp.web.lists.getByTitle("IT Docs")
      .filter('FSObjType eq 1')
      .select('FileLeafRef', 'FileRef')

And I want to check whether the folder has permissions to the user which is selected in people picker textbox. Can anybody please suggest me how to achieve the same using pnp/sp library using react js?

FYI, Below is the link which I am referring and using which I was able to check whether the library has permissions to the user but couldn't find the way to check folder has permission to the user. :(


Please help.

Thanks in Advance.
