Automatic permissions on sub-collections

There is this new feature on Metabase where, in order to apply a permission on a sub-collection, I have to:

  1. switch the toggle
  2. then change the permission (different than the one the collection have)
  3. save
  4. then change again with the toggle and save again


I don't understand why I can't apply it directly when choosing the permission. I'm setting the permissions via the API.

Is there a way to set an env variable or a setting or a param in the API call to give sub-collections the same permission as the root automatically please ?
