In this tutorial, we will learn how to check server permissions on Discord. Server permissions determine what actions members can take within a Discord server. By default, each role in Discord has its own set of permissions, and members are assigned one or more roles that grant them specific abilities.

Checking Server Permissions

To check the server permissions on Discord, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Open the Discord application or website and log in to your account.
  2. Step 2: Select the server you want to check the permissions for from your server list on the left-hand side of the screen.
  3. Step 3: On the right-hand side of the screen, locate and click on the down arrow next to the server name to open the drop-down menu.
  4. Step 4: From the drop-down menu, select “Server Settings”.
  5. Step 5: In the left sidebar of the “Server Settings” page, click on “Roles”.

You will now see a list of all roles available in your Discord server. Each role has its own set of permissions that determine what actions members with that role can perform within the server.

Viewing Role Permissions

To view and manage role permissions within your Discord server:

  1. Select a Role:
  • To view a specific role’s permissions, click on that role from the list. The corresponding permission checkboxes will appear on the right side of the screen. You can now see which actions are allowed or denied for members with that role.
  1. Modify Permissions:
  • If you want to modify the permissions for a role, simply toggle the checkboxes next to the desired permissions. This will grant or revoke specific abilities for members with that role.

Remember to click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page to apply any modifications you make.

Understanding Permissions

Discord offers a wide range of permissions that can be assigned to roles within a server. Some common permissions include:

  • Manage Roles: Allows a member to create, edit, and delete roles within the server.
  • Kick Members: Grants the ability to kick members out of the server.
  • Ban Members: Gives permission to ban members from the server entirely.
  • Create Instant Invite: Allows a member to create invite links for other users.
  • Send Messages: Enables sending messages in text channels.

You can explore and customize these permissions based on your requirements and server management needs. It’s vital to carefully assign permissions to ensure proper moderation and control within your Discord community.


In this tutorial, we’ve learned how to check server permissions on Discord. By following these steps, you can easily view and manage role permissions within your Discord server. Remember that responsible permission management is crucial for maintaining a well-functioning and organized community on Discord.
