In site setting I want to hide a link in the Site Actions group from the Full Control users.

enter image description here

Anyone can point me to the right direction?


As Modify Site Metadata seems like it's a custom action, you need to return to the code used to add it. CSOM accepts Rights attribute, which are based on SPBasePermission enumeration. You need to define a higher-than-site-owner-level permission right, which would be ManageWeb.

So, add the following to your code:

Rights = "ManageWeb"

The complete code would be something like:

UserCustomAction siteAction = clientContext.Web.UserCustomActions.Add();
siteAction.Group = "SiteActions";
siteAction.Location = "Microsoft.SharePoint.StandardMenu";
siteAction.Name = "Sample_CustomAction";
siteAction.Sequence = 1000;
siteAction.Url = string.Format(DeployManager.appUrl, clientContext.Url); ;
siteAction.Title = "Modify Site Metadata";
siteAction.Rights = "ManageWeb"; 

References 1 & 2.
