Defining a new Role to just add content

Hi all

I am designing a new Role for my Alfresco installation, so all users that belong to a group with this Role will be able to
Read - Update- Write -Add - Lock -UnLock… all possible actions for a conent (document), but I dont want this role to be able to create rules for the space, or manage users, or to create new child spaces.

I have tried to do this in a new role in the permissionDefinitions.xml file as I have seen in other posts, pretty much I have got the Editor Role and addted the Write - Read - Delete and AddChildren Roles.

With this I get the users to be able to add content, and all the other actions I want, but the users are also able to create child spaces, which I dont want.

I think the problem is in the AddChildren role, if I remove it, the users are not able to create new child spaces, but they are not also able to add new conent…

Does anybody know what is the right solution for this one?

Cheers mates :wink:
