Break Role Inheritance On List in SharePoint using CSOM

The example in this topic show how to use CSOM to Break Role Inheritance On List in SharePoint

  • using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;
  • using System.Linq;
  • using (ClientContext clientContext = new ClientContext("http://MyServer/sites/MySiteCollection"))
  • {
  • // Code to set list with unique permission and assign a particular group on list with desired permission
  • // This method may not work for Calculated column
  • // clientcontext.Web.Lists.GetById - This option also can be used to get the list using List GUID
  • // This value is NOT List internal name
  • List targetList = clientContext.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("List Title");
  • // This method takes two parameteres.
  • // (1) copyRoleAssignments(Boolean) - Specifies whether to copy the role assignments from the parent or not.
  • // If the value is false, the collection of role assignments must contain only 1 role assignment containing the current user after the operation
  • // (2) clearSubscopes(Boolean) - clearsubscopes parameter is true, the role assignments for all child objects will be cleared and those objects will inherit role assignments from the current object after this call.
  • // If the clearsubscopes parameter is false, the role assignments for all child objects which do not inherit role assignments from their parent must remain unchanged.
  • targetList.BreakRoleInheritance(true, true);
  • targetList.Update();
  • clientContext.ExecuteQuery();
  • }
