Special Synchronization Cases for Valid Permissions

If you remove permissions from the list of valid permissions for a web application in SharePoint, the permissions cannot be assigned to permission levels within the web application from this point on. Assignments to permission levels that already exist for these permissions remain intact but are not active. These permissions are deleted from the table SPSWebAppHasPermission during synchronization. Assignments to permission levels that already exist for these permissions are not changed. Inactive permissions are displayed in the permission levels' overview.
