In backend go to: System -> Permissions -> Roles -> Add New Role -> Role Resources

Set the role by checking one or more items and give it a Role Name. Save the role.

Go to: Systen -> Permissions - > Users and create a New User or choose a user from the list. In the User menu, choose the User Role.

    hi, i know how to create the new role and assign user. but my question is that under "Role Resources", there is no option where i can choose to allow this user to add product only. I only see "Manage Products" option. If i checked this one, then this user can also delete all the products. hope this explanation helps.
