User permissions and permission levels
This Mind map is based on the TechNet article that provides information about User permissions and permission levels (SharePoint Server 2010).
I recently came across this article again and felt that a Mind map would be a good means of presenting the information and potentially useful as a learning/training tool.
To quote from the TechNet article:
Permission levels are collections of permissions that allow users to perform a set of related tasks. SharePoint Server 2010 includes five permission levels by default. You can customize the permissions available in these permission levels (except for the Limited Access and Full Control permission levels), or you can create customized permission levels that contain only the specific permissions you need. For more information about how to customize permission levels, see Configure custom permissions (SharePoint Server 2010).Back to top
SharePoint Server 2010 includes 33 permissions, which are used in the five default permission levels. You can change which permissions are included in a particular permission level (except for the Limited Access and Full Control permission levels), or you can create a new permission level to contain specific permissions. Permissions are categorized as list permissions, site permissions, and personal permissions, depending on the objects to which they can be applied. For example, site permissions apply to a particular site, list permissions apply only to lists and libraries, and personal permissions apply only to things such as personal views, private Web Parts, and more. The following tables describe what each permission is used for, the dependent permissions, and the permission levels in which it is included.
