G'day everyone, wondering if someone can help me with this one. I have a workflow that is attached to a list that creates a subsite, and creates a Group for that site, that group has Contribute permissions.

What I need to do is remove Contribute permissions and apply read only permissions to a document library when the site is created....

Any thoughts on how this could be achieved?




I guess, Workflow Impersonation feature will help you here.

  • Hi Anuja, thanks for the reply. They are referring to item level permissions. I need to set permissions on the doc library itself. – Daniel Oct 1 '13 at 6:17
