I create a custom permission level and set it to a site collection programmatically. Is it possible to define it as a read only such as OOB permission level, for example:"Full Control", "Contribute".. I have to block user from changing/deleting/copying the custom permission level that was set programmatically

As long as the user doesn't have "Manage Permission" rights, they will not be able edit permission levels for a site. Look for the below checkbox in the permission level you have assigned thementer image description here

I hope this helps

  • In general I want to give users the option to create new permission level.but those that were set programmatically I want to block users from edit/delete.
