I have a current logged in User Id and through JQuery I want to find that whether the User Id is in site collection admins or not.

   operation: "GetUserInfo",
   userLoginName: $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser(),
   completefunc: function(xData, Status) {

I have used above code but for the normal users its not working.

isSiteAdmin gets you Site Admin info, not Site Collection

This might be easier:


You can use the following code to check whether current user is site admin or not.

var user = SP.ClientContext.get_web().get_currentUser();

var value = user.get_isSiteAdmin ();
