Flow Stop sharing a SharePoint folder
I would like the ability to use Microsoft flow to manage SharePoint folders permissions (Permission list: Full Control | Edit | View) for the following entities users, security groups and Office 365 groups (Operations: Add | Remove | Modify)
As of today 20191113, the tech article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/#stop-sharing-an-item-or-a-folder) says it provide this functionality, yet by testing and through MS support it does not work. This is folder operation in specific and not an item or file
there is a alternative solution to this problem -> using 'send an HTTP request' action:

Need this bad...Document Sets are folders internally so I can's stop sharing a document set using Power Automate...Can set permissions but not drop them.
I'm surprised about the fact, stop sharing SharePoint folder is not possible. I'm on the way, moving 2010 SharePoint-Workflows to FLOW and this issue is a very important one for me.
Yes - following my opinion, this is important...
This needs to be added! ASAP
Need this ASAP

Critical, yet missing, functionality.
We need this for folders and document sets - so many business processes depend on security of information.
We need this urgently - especially now Sharepoint designer is no longer going to be supported..
With SharePoint 2010 workflows on their way out, we need the means to control folder permissions.
Yes indeed - how are we to auto-manage security on folders without this basic function? Come on MS, please sort this one out.
I managed to get the whole thing looking like it would work despite the poor documentation and help. Only to find that, in the end, it can't be done.
Was looking at this in PowerShell as well and it is equally opaque - all examples are for the non-Teams SP.

MS has officially changed the description to “Stop sharing an item or a file” from “Stop sharing an item or a folder” at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/#stop-sharing-an-item-or-a-file
We need more ppl to up vote this one, please share with your colleagues

This is such an important feature. Hopefully, Microsoft rolls this out soon.

Critical to using Power Automate for any level of security and permission management.

we need too. Please, Power Automate is really poor with SharePoint permission actions, and this is a basic need to manage basic security patterns. fix it. tnx
