How to set up Permissions on Discord?

The Discord permission system is based on roles that you give to your members. Permissions can be given according to roles on both the server level and channel level.

They are then resolved by adding up all the permissions from all the roles on a user. Channels can nullify a role’s server permissions.


How to create Roles?

You have to start setting up different Roles to give to your members in order to start setting up permissions for your group.

It is up to you that which role you want to assign to a member. You can assign custom role as your group requires. Different roles can be given to a single member. Roles contain a name, a set of permissions and a set of members.

  • To create, delete or assign permissions to roles click on the “Roles” tab found in the Server Settings menu.
