Permission levels: Permission help users to access resources they actually need. For an instance, permissions allow users to open an item from library, create a subsite etc. Mostly, a single permit is grouped into a collection of permission known as ‘permissions level’. Suppose, if you want to give permission to someone to read items on your site, then you need to give permission for opening the page containing the item. Thus, the Read permission level comprises of all the single permissions which user has to read items.

By default there are the following permission levels: Sharepoint has certain permission levels which are as follows:

  • Full Control: It contains complete SharePoint permissions. This permission level is assigned to the Owners group. It is not possible to delete it or modify it.
  • Design: This is used for creating document libraries and lists, for edit pages and for applying borders, themes, and style sheets on the site. There is not a single SharePoint group which has assigned this permission level automatically.
  • Edit: It comprises of Add, delete lists, and edit. It also contains added, update, view, delete, list items and documents. This permission level is assigned to the Members group.
  • Contribute: View, add, update, and delete list items and documents comes in this category.
  • Read: It includes Add, edit, and delete items into the existing lists and document libraries.
  • Limited Access: This permission level is somewhat unusual. It helps user to enable or group so that browse to the site page or library for accessing some of the specific content items. Usually, the user was given facility for accessing a single item in a list or in the library, but does not provide permission to edit or open any other item in the library. The permission level consisted of all the permissions which user must have for accessing the needed item. One cannot assign Limited Access permission level to any particular user group. In place of it, assign apt permission to the single item, and after that SharePoint automatically assigns Limited Access to other required locations.
  • Approve: It includes editing and approve pages, list items, and documents. The Approve group has permission for this, by default.
  • Manage Hierarchy: Read sites, edit pages, documents, and list items. This permission level is assigned to the Hierarchy Managers group, by default.
  • Restricted Read: View documents and pages, except user permissions and historical versions.
