Provide the ability to create custom sponsor user types

Provide a way for a sponsor admin to define custom sponsor user types, beyond the current sponsor admin, LOB and standard users.  For the various permissions, there should be a way to indicate what that role can do with each one (nothing, read only, edit/update, etc.).  The IBM Control Center has a nice mechanism for doing this (attaching a screenshot).

The permissions should include things such as which applications can be logged into (portal, repository, provisioner), roll out activities, developing activities, updating e-mail templates, ability to participate in activity tasks based on custom roles, ability to participate in activities regardless of custom roles (current admin privilege), uploading documents, etc.  It should be very granular.

The assignment of a custom user type should be available via the UI along with the current user type options.  The API call to retrieve sponsor users should return all of the permissions assigned.

How will this idea be used?

This would provide a way to create custom user types to meet business and policy requirements.  This includes segregation of duties, limiting developers to not being able to invite partners, etc.
