Remove Item Permissions plugin properties

The Remove Item Permissions plugin removes custom permissions on an item, but only from those items which have unique role assignments. Non-unique item permissions (usually inherited from a parent) are unaffected.

To use the Remove Item Permissions plugin with Excel Workflow, the user needs to be added to the web app policy as well as to the Site Collection owner group. The user can be added to the web app policy by using the AddUserPolicy command.

For example: Items in Process Controlled Shared Documents do not have unique role assignments and hence this plugin would not affect them. But items in a user-created document library are created by unique role assignments, so this plugin will affect them.

If the Plugin Action Node property Continue Without Waiting is set to false, the Workflow Administrator must set the Workflow Configuration Design property Async Allowed from the Workflow Administration site. For more information, see the following links:
