Propagate new permission levels between site collections?

  Asked By: Devan    Date: Dec 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2381

Is it possible to do the following:
1. create one or more new permission levels within a site collection
2. save the site as a custom template
3. move it to the global site gallery using stsadm
4. Create another site collection within the same web app ...
and have the new permission levels appear?

Is there any way to do this other than the above example?

I am looking for a way to centrally propoagate new permission levels
and new groups so that they can be used when new site collections are

Permission Levels can be created using the Object Model. You could
package that code as an Event that would run when a Feature was
activated. Then you could add the Feature to existing site  Definitions
through Feature stapling and set it to activate when the Site was
provisioned. Groups could be handled the same way. This would handle
it on every WebApp on the server, and you could also create  it on
existing sites simply by activating the Feature.
