Custom Permission Level in Sharepoint 2010


SharePoint gives us the following Permissions Level by default.

Full Control
Has Full Control

Design
Can view, add, update, delete, approve, and customize

Contribute
Can view, add, update, and delete list items and documents

Read
Can view pages and list items and download documents

Limited Access
Can view specific lists, document libraries, list items, folders, or documents when given permissions

View Only
Can view pages, list items, and documents. Document types with server-side file handlers can be viewed in the browser but not downloaded
Suppose we have a requirement like we need to give the Permissions in such a way that a user can add and edit the item but will not be able to delete the Item in a list/Document Library or any other requirement which can not be fulfilled by using the default Permission Level.
In such scenario we can create a Custom Permission Level in which we can specify which permission set it should contain.
In this article we will see how to create a Custom Permission Level.
Step 1: Click on Site Permissions under Site Actions Menu.

Step 2: Click on Permission Level as shown in the below figure.

Step 3: Click on Add a Permission Level

Step 4: Select the appropriate ‘Permission Set’ by checking the checkboxes and click on Create Button.

Custom Permission Level has been created. 

Now use this Custom Permission Level as per your requirement.
