SharePoint 2010 : Create Permission Levels for a Site

10/24/2010 4:19:47 PM
To create permission levels, open the site’s permissions management page and click the Permission Levels button in the Manage section of the ribbon.


If you are working on a subsite, by default the permission levels are inherited from the parent site. Although you can still edit them (an action that breaks the inheritance), you should make sure this is what you actually want to do. If you want to make sure you are editing the permission levels in the top site, use the Manage Parent option in the Inheritance section of the Edit ribbon of the permission management page to get to the parent site’s permissions management page.

On the Permission Levels page, you can see and manage all the existing permission levels (see Figure 1).

Figure 1. The Permission Levels page.

To create a new permission level, click the Add a Permission Level button on the toolbar. The Add a Permission Level page opens (see Figure 2). On this page, you can define the name for the new permission level and what permissions set it should include. Simply select the permissions you want the permission level to include and click the Create button at the bottom of the screen.
