   $privilege-name as String,
   $action as String,
   $kind as String,
   $role-names as String[]
) as (Number|String)


Creates a new privilege and returns the new privilege-id.

For execute privileges, the privilege is initially nothing more than a name. Use the xdmp:security-assert() function in your code to associate the privilege with a protected operation.

For URI privleges, the $action parameter identifies the base URI to be protected. Users must have this privilege to access any of the documents or code under the specified URI.

If $action is not unique, an error is returned.

If $kind is not one of ("execute", "uri") then en error is returned.

If one of the $role-names names a role that does not exist, an error is returned.

If the current user is limited to granting only his/her roles, and $role-names is not a subset of the current user's roles, then an error is returned.

$privilege-name The name of the privilege to create (unique within security database).
$action Action protected by this privilege. For an Execute Privilege, this is usually a URI describing an activity. For a URI Privilege, this is a base URI used to filter database activities with certain document URIs.
$kind Either "execute" or "uri".
$role-names The names of the roles which can perform this action.
