Hi, I am trying to add several users in Shared Drive's folder or files and I have been seeing this error below. Should I be concerned about this or do you know a way to resolve this error? The script I have been works but sometimes I do see this error. Your thoughts is appreciated. Thanks.

When the multiple permissions are created to a file and a folder in the loop, there is the case such error occurs. So although I'm not sure whether this is the direct solution because I'm not sure about the detail of your situation, for example, how about using "Utilities.sleep()" and/or the batch request?

Thank you Tanaike. I will try that Utilitilies.sleep().

@Tanaike - I figured out what the issue is. I had to change "role" from user and group and after that the script ran just fine. I also used the Utilities.sleep() which also helped.

Thanks!
