Assign user to group and the user loses access settings

I have used the function "Users.ApplyUserPreset"  , and it works. There is only on problem. If an admin set a user to access a specific folder, and the user changes group with the function "Users.ApplyUserPreset". The setting are gone.

I want to keep these settings.

It is possible for to set user access settings from the api ?

Any suggestions ?

Re: Assign user to group and the user loses access settings


Applying a preset will mean that existing folder access is replaced by what the chosen preset allows so there isn't a way to carry over access to specific folders. Our API doesn't yet include other approaches to allow you to assign access outside of the existing Users.ApplyUserPreset() method, sorry.
