Permission Levels In SharePoint 2013

All Internet and intranet applications' permissions should be required to use our application so that it can be made secure. In SharePoint out of the box, Microsoft has already provided so many permissions to secure our application.

After you have created a SharePoint site, you may want to provide or restrict user access to the site or its contents. For example, you might want to provide access only to members of your team, or you might want to provide access to everyone, but restrict editing for some. The easiest way to work with permissions is to use the default groups and permission levels provided by SharePoint Out Of Box features.

Creating Custom Permissions Groups

Go to Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Permissions (Users and Permissions).

Click on Permission Levels (In Ribbon).

Add a Permission Level (Menu).

Name = Add or Edit Permission, Check Add Items and Edit Items checkboxes -> Create.

To Create A Custom Permissions For Lists / Libraries Or ListItems

By default, the permission given to the site automatically applies to the lists as well. We can override these settings and give permissions.

Open List -> Settings -> List Settings -> Permissions for this list.

SharePoint permissions can depend on other SharePoint permissions. For example, you must be able to open an item to view it. In this way, View Items permission depends on Open permission.

When you select a SharePoint permission that depends on another, SharePoint automatically selects the associated permission. Similarly, when you clear SharePoint permission, SharePoint automatically clears any SharePoint permission that depends on it. For example, when you clear View Items, SharePoint automatically clears Managed Lists (you can't manage a list if you can't view an item).
