Add a New Security Role (Permission Level) in SharePoint 2007

May 26, 2009

1) From the Site Collection go into ‘Site Settings’.
2) Under ‘Users and Permissions’ go into ‘People and Groups’
3) On the side menu go into ‘Site Permissions’
4) From the Toolbar click ‘Settings’ > ‘Permissions Levels’

From here you can create and edit your ‘Permission Levels’ aka ‘Roles’.

Took me a while to find this. Hidden in the depths of one of SharePoint’s sub-sub-sub menus. The API uses the term ‘Role’ however elsewhere this is known as ‘Permission Level’.
