like pages and posts we use “projects” as type to publish sort-of portfolios, like here: http://beta.fluechtlingshilfe-goettingen.de/uebersicht-organisationen/
For each item we create a unique role and user, so that only the “owner” of an item, can change the content (and write posts/events).
Therefore we set the items role permission to the correct restrictions.
Our problem is now: When we create another role, it will be added automatically to all items and set as enabled. So we have to get to all this items and disable the specific permissions for the new role we added.
How can we prevent this?

Can you use the Bulk Edit functionality to set the permissions for the new role?

thanks, but I can think straight now, sorry.
What have I do? I’d like to have this right management:
User A (role a) -> Edit only project a ( all via role permission in editor)
User B (role b) -> Edit only project b
User C (role c) -> Edit only project c
When I create the roles now (without bulk) in this exact order, the situation is so:
User A (role a) -> Edit project a, b, c
User B (role b) -> Edit project b, c
User C (role c) -> Edit project c
Because the role permission add the new roles automatically to the role permission editor.
And like I said: I do not understand the bulk editor ;). Have you a link for the bulk editor please or a hint, how I can use this?

Bulk Edit is exactly what you see on a post/page/cpt edit page. Except that instead of a single post, it allows you to update multiple posts at the same time.
Here is the documentation.

thanks for your answer!
If I understand correctly, you can change all rights and have to overwrite all individual settings, because there is no way to ignore fields in bulk edit.
So I can delete the wrong permission in all sites at once, but have to set individual permissions for each site seperate?
Is there no way to change the settings so, that new roles in the modul “Role permissions” are not checked?

Your understanding is correct, it will overwrite everything, not individual roles. Sorry, at this point there is no other option other than you manually update each post. I’ll change the UI of bulk edit so that you will be able to select individual roles. I’ll put this on top of my to do list.
