Hi dear,

I have created a user in portal for ArcGIS and I dont want that user to add item or create a template or app in my portal. Is there any way to do that?

Yasser,

Click the edit icon for that role. You will see a bunch of checkboxes relating to the action that user can perform.

To disable adding items to your portal - Under 'General Privileges' look for 'Content' and uncheck 'Create, update, and delete' checkbox option.

I guess the easiest way to do that would be to assign a level 1 named user to the user. Only named users with level 2 are allowed to create content.Levels, roles, and privileges—Portal for ArcGIS (10.5) | ArcGIS Enterprise 

In case you don't have any level 1 named users available you can configure a specific role for the user switching all create options off. Configure roles—Portal for ArcGIS (10.5) | ArcGIS Enterprise

Many thanks Anthony and Xander,

We are using Portal for ArcGIS (10.4.1) and there is no plan to upgrade to 10.5, Could you please help by providing a solution for 10.4.1?

Regards!

You can create a custom role with Viewer template and assign it to the corresponding users.

Viewer—Content consumers who interact with maps and view content shared to them in groups.

Yasser,

I'm using Portal 10.3.1 with custom roles.

Many thanks all ... yes Jayanta, this is true, I am able now to disable these functions by adding a custom role.
