Create subsite with unique permissions

When using the create sharepoint subsite step in K2 Workflow, there is no setting for inheriting permissions.  I would like to choose "No" for inheriting permissions from the parent and have the OOTB permissions groups (using the site name) created automatically.  Is there a way to do this?

Hello,


 


There is no option to stop the inheritance of permissions from the root site via the create subsite wizard. There is however a wizard that will break inherited permissions on a specified site/subsite. See below documentation:

You could then have this wizard run after the create subsite wizard completes.


 


Additionally to create the groups via the workflow we can implement the "Create Group" Wizard. See below:

Finally you can then add users to the group via the Add User to Group Wizard:

HTH!
