A program manager who maintains an issue ticketing system wanted to enable her users to add new and edit existing tickets but not be able to delete them.  Essentially, she need to grant her users the Contribute permission but without the Delete option.  The solution needed for her was a custom permissions level.  This posting shows you how to make one.

  1. Connect to the appropriate website as a site collection administrator.
  2. Navigate to the top level site settings.
  3. Go: Users and Permissions > Site permissions.
  4. On the Permissions ribbon, click the Permission Levels button.
  5. On the Permission Level list, look for the Contribute.
  6. Click Contribute.
  7. Scroll to the bottom, and then look for the Copy Permission Level button. 
  8. Click this button.
  9. In the List Permissions group, look for Delete Items.
  10. Uncheck this permission.
  11. Click OK.  Your new custom permission level will be listed.
