In our current setup. I am responsible for Sharepoint in our company. This means that I do everything from deploying to application support to giving users rights to the platform when it is required.
My question pertains to giving rights to users. I have sharepoint designer installed and use that to grant users access to the platform. I would like to hand this responsibility over to our Systems security officer.
I was wondering what kind of options I have. Do I ask him to install sharepoint designer and have him give access from there (not something I prefer because that would give way too much control on everything else in his hands) or do I give him permissions to grant permissions via the sharepoint site.
This brings me to the meat of the question: What permissions are required on what level to enable a user to be able to give permissions to the site/libraries etc without actually being able to "contribute" to the site otherwise.
