SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My turn to ask a question. Is there any way to grant someone permissions to view the web analytics reports for Site collections without making them site owner/Full control on the site collection?

I want to give a person access to only view the reports and be able to do something else on the site (apart from normal viewing rights).

Thanks

In order to give a user rights to view web analytics without giving them other permissions, you need to:

  1. Create a new Permission Level where the only permission is "View Web Analytics Data - View reports on Web site usage"
  2. Create a new SharePoint group which you assign the newly created Permission level
  3. Add the user to this group (either directly or preferably through an AD group)
