Set and remove multiple permissions on a page

Hi there!

I am trying to remove and add permissions (page restrictions) in bulk on Confluence Pages using Scriptrunner. I am looping through my ids which I'm getting from a resultset of a database query.

When iterating through I get this error after the permissions of the first entry are set and removed correctly:

2022-04-27 08:18:12,662 ERROR [common.UserScriptEndpoint]: Script console script failed:

java.util.ConcurrentModificationException at org.hibernate.collection.internal.AbstractPersistentCollection$ at

this is my script:

def userAccessor = ComponentLocator.getComponent(UserAccessor)
def contentPermissionManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(ContentPermissionManager)

String[] PageIds = ["31920133", "126354667"
String groupToRemove = "group"

def pageManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PageManager)
def pages
def List<Page> pagesPageList = []
pages = PageIds.each{ pagesToEdit ->
    if (!pagesToEdit) {
        log.warn("Page: " + pagesToEdit + " was not found in the System.")


def group = userAccessor.getGroup(groupToRemove)

if (!group) {
    log.warn("Group: " + groupToRemove + " was not found in the System.")

String[] groupsToAdd = ["se", "ssa-test"]

def editPermissions = []
    groupsToAdd.each{ groupToAdd ->
    editPermissions.add(ContentPermission.createGroupPermission(EDIT_PERMISSION, groupToAdd as String))

def mapEdit = [(EDIT_PERMISSION): editPermissions] as Map

for (Page page : pagesPageList) {
    for (ContentPermission cp : page.getContentPermissionSet(ContentPermission.EDIT_PERMISSION)) {
        if (cp.toString().contains("groupName=" + groupToRemove)) {
            // Remove the Permission
            log.warn("Group: " + groupToRemove + " was found having EDIT Permissions for Page Id: " + page.getContentId() + ".")
            log.warn("Removed EDIT permissions for Group: " + groupToRemove + " for Page Id: " + page.getTitle() + ".")
            // Set the Permission
            contentPermissionManager.setContentPermissions(mapEdit, page)
  "Added EDIT Permission for Group: " + mapEdit + " for Page Id: " + page.getTitle() + ".")
I assume I have to somehow commit the first operation but I don't know how... 
Hope that someone can help me - thank you in advance!!
Best regards
