Whenever I create a Survey record, it is automatically shared with "All Internal Users". This is not letting me share the records according to Sharing settings. Instead of manually deleting that row, I want to delete it through trigger After Insert. I have tried using SurveyShare but still not working as expected.enter image description here

Below is the code I am trying to delete the highlighted sharing.

        for(Survey surveyShareToBeDeleted : newSurvey){
            System.debug('New Survey Id ' + surveyShareToBeDeleted.Id);
            SurveyShare surveyShare  = new SurveyShare();
            allInternalUser = [SELECT Id FROM Group WHERE DeveloperName = 'AllInternalUsers' LIMIT 1];
            System.debug('All Internal User Group Id ' + allInternalUser.Id);
            // Set the ID of record being shared.
            surveyShare.ParentId = surveyShareToBeDeleted.Id;

            // Set the ID of user or group being granted access.
            surveyShare.UserOrGroupId = allInternalUser.Id;

            // Set the access level.
            surveyShare.AccessLevel = 'Read';

            // Set rowCause to 'manual' for manual sharing.
            // This line can be omitted as 'manual' is the default value for sharing objects.
            surveyShare.RowCause = Schema.SurveyShare.RowCause.Manual;
            System.debug('Row cause fetched ' + surveyShare.RowCause);

            // Insert the sharing record and capture the save result. 
            // The false parameter allows for partial processing if multiple records passed 
            // into the operation.
            Database.SaveResult sr = Database.insert(surveyShare,false);

        List<SurveyShare> surveySharesToDelete = [SELECT Id 
                                                  FROM SurveyShare 
                                                  WHERE ParentId IN :trigger.newMap.keyset() 
                                                  AND RowCause = 'Manual'];
                                                  System.debug('Size of list ' + surveySharesToDelete.size());
            Database.Delete(surveySharesToDelete, false);
    catch(Exception ex){
        System.debug('Exception occured while deleting survey sharing for All Internal Users ' + ex);

Can anyone please help me with this? Thanks!

    You'll need to do more debugging before we can help you. Without an error message or something to work from, there's not much we can do to help you. – sfdcfox Apr 13 at 9:11

    I’m super confused. The code you share is inserting the rowshare you want to delete. (And then you’re attempting to delete it). What’s worse, you’re inserting it inside a loop so you’re going to violate limits. Seems like we’re missing a lot of code. – Sebastian Kessel Apr 13 at 15:25
