Creates unique role assignments for the securable object.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client
Assemblies:   Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Silverlight (in Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Silverlight.dll);  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client (in Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll)

[RemoteAttribute]
public virtual void BreakRoleInheritance(
	bool copyRoleAssignments,
	bool clearSubscopes
)

Parameters

copyRoleAssignments
Type: System.Boolean
Specifies whether to copy the role assignments from the parent securable object.
If the value is false, the collection of role assignments must contain only 1 role assignment containing the current user after the operation.
clearSubscopes
Type: System.Boolean
If the securable object is a site, and the clearsubscopes parameter is true, the role assignments for all child securable objects in the current site and in the sites which inherit role assignments from the current site must be cleared and those securable objects will inherit role assignments from the current site after this call.
If the securable object is a site, and the clearsubscopes parameter is false, the role assignments for all child securable objects which do not inherit role assignments from their parent object must remain unchanged.
If the securable object is not a site, and the clearsubscopes parameter is true, the role assignments for all child securable objects must be cleared and those securable objects will inherit role assignments from the current securable object after this call.
If the securable object is not a site, and the clearsubscopes parameter is false, the role assignments for all child securable objects which do not inherit role assignments from their parent object must remain unchanged.

ExceptionCondition
[Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException]

The current site is the top-level site. Error code: -2146232832.

[System.InvalidOperationException]

There are uncommitted changes for the current site. Error code: -1.

[System.UnauthorizedAccessException]

The current user has insufficient permissions. Error code: -2147024891.

If the securable object already has unique role assignments, the server must not alter any role assignments.

This code example creates a new permission level and adds a user to the Announcements list with that permission level.
