break and change list item permission using Power Automate

Using Power automate (Microsoft Flow) to assign permissions on a single item, folder or file is fairly easy, but can quickly becom complicated, if you traverse through many sites and lists. This is a simple guide for the very basic setup. I often start by restoring the permissions for the item, so I know, there is nothing inherited or old informaiton on the item, that I need to care about. This basic example will set the permissions of the author to read. So right after the item is created, the author will not be able to edit the item.
