SharePoint have some default permission levels like 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.

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

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.
