How to copy an existing folder together with associated users and their permissions?

Hi,

 

I have a requirement to make a new folder which has a new name (doh!), but keep all the users from another folder and their respective roles/permissions.  There are over 80 users in the old folder and it seems logical that copying the old folder with its users and then renaming it is a simpler approach.

 

I tried finding a "copy/paste" type of command in the web interface, to no avail.

 

Could anyone kindly advise how can this be accomplished?  Is this potentially a PowerShell script kind of job?

 

Cheers,

I think PowerShell and the REST-API might be your only practical way of achieveing this

Thanks for confirming, stpnet.  Guess it's time to (finally) get into PowerShell.
