What are some example strings for the permission parameter of addPermissionToSpace?

I cannot figure out what string to pass in to the addPermissionToSpace method of the Confluence SOAP API. I have tried many combinations such as "View", "Add Pages", "Space Admin", "Administer Space", etc., but all attempts have resulted in blocking the permissions for the "confluence-users" group which I'm trying to add permissions for (imagine the picture below with all red "X"s for the "confluence-users" group). What are some acceptable strings for the permissions parameter? Is there a list anywhere?
