How do I share a G-suite folder with specific user?

I want to share a g-suite folder found or created from a previous zap action with a specific user.

I’m aware of webhooks in zapier but these sound like you need to wait for something to change rather than a proactive API POST call which I want to invoke each time.

Apologies if this sounds dumb but need some help.

Thanks @Troy Tessalone - Had a look through and this isn’t exactly what I need. It enables me to set sharing scope and a link but not to say use the output of a previous step (A user’s email address) to share the file or folder with only that user’s email. 

I tried using google APIs and zapier custom webhooks to do this but google APIs are not straightforward to implement (At least for me I kept getting weird errors)
