How to create custom permission in SharePoint Online

In this article we are going to discuss custom permissions in SharePoint and how to create custom permission in SharePoint. We will also explore usage of the custom permission.

SharePoint have some default permission levels. Full control, design, edit, contribute, view, read and view only.




Every permission level defined the accessibility of user on the items. Permission level plays important role in SharePoint security.

In some scenarios you need to assign a permission to user for add and edit the item but you do not want to allow user to delete the item. For such types of scenarios there is no default permission level is available, to fulfill your requirement you need to create custom permission level.


How to create custom permission level in SharePoint:

1 Navigate to Site settings.


 2. Click on Site permissions and you will redirect to the permission page.




3.  Click on the Permission Levels, you will redirect to the permission page. On permission page,   Click on  Add a Permission Level.


4. On Add a Permission level page. In Name and description section, Put name of permission level and add description.


In List Permission under the  permission section, select permission you want to add in this permission level in our example we want permission to add and edit item except delete item. For that we select Add, Edit, View and also selected create alerts.


In Site Permissions under the permission section, few options are already selected in our example we do not need to select any option but as per the requirement we can select options.


In Personal Permissions under the permission section, You can check permission related to adding web parts and changing views of the list.


Now click on create. And you will redirect to permission level page where you can find the permission level you have created. We have created a permission level named CustomPermission.




How can i edit the custom permission level?


On the permission level page, you will find all the available permission level. On clicking the permission level name you can redirect to the edit page. after making changes you can save the changes.


Test the permission level :

1. Create a group on site.

2. while assigning permission you can find the custom permission level, check the custom permission level.

3. click on OK. Now members of  your newly created group have permission based on your custom permission level.


Thank You!!!
