Role Definitions and Permission Levels

Posted by Paul on February 23, 2015


In this article we can explore Role Definitions and Permission Levels in SharePoint 2013.

Both Role Definitions and Permission Levels are same. The role definition is a name to a set of permission rights. For example the role definition Contribute has the following rights:

· Add Items

· Edit Items

· Delete Items

· Delete Versions

· Browse Directories

· Edit Personal User Information

· Manage Personal Views

· Add/Remove Personal Web Parts

· Update Personal Web Parts

Permission Rights are associated with specific operations. We cannot create custom Permission Rights.
