Break List Item Permissions PowerShell

Break Permissions Item Level / Custom Permissions at item level

Blow PowerShell script will retain list permission and give unique permissions atitem level.

We had a requirement to break all item level permissions and remove all the Groups and individual permissions at the item level and Add Owners group and Approvers group  to all items and also it should retain the permissions of item created by.

At the  item level it will delete the all inherited Groups from List and Add specific groups to each item name called " Owners" with  "Full Control " and "Approvers" with "Design" Permissions.


asnp "*sh*"

$web=Get-SPWeb -Identity "http://weshare.sedwdev.local/sites/teste"

Write-Host " Author is " $web.Author.DisplayName


foreach($item in $list.Items)

 for($i=0 ; $i -lt $item.RoleAssignments.Count;$i++)

   if(!$item["Created By"])

    $item.Title + "permissions Removed "
  } }

  foreach( $grp in $web.Groups)
     if ($grp.Name -match "teste Owners")

     $rolAsgnmt=New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPRoleAssignment($grp);

     $roldef=$web.RoleDefinitions["Full Control"]



     " Item title is  "+ $item.Title + "  Group Added is  " + $grp.Name


    elseif ($grp.Name -match "Approvers")

     $rolAsgnmt1=New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPRoleAssignment($grp);




     " Item title is  "+ $item.Title + "  Group Added is  " + $grp.Name
