Question regarding the Site Administrator roles

This question has been answered by DELL-Andrey M

Is there any views available on information Portal based on user permissions (Example: If we want to give specific reports to user xyz, can we add his/her roles or it will work on SharePoint based permissions only….why this question again coz we don’t want to add developers/admins on direct at site level….we want to give them permission on information portal level….is that possible)?

  • There are three levels of delegation which, as Sean points out, are security trimmed to only show what the user has permission to view, and only manage on the same basis. The full administrator (which can be added to any user using the settings page) – this allows full access both viewing and managing to the user (by default the only account in this group is the installation account); the Site Administrator – these have full access both view and manage to those sites which they are named as either primary or secondary Site Administrator; the Site Owner – they will have view-only permissions on the sites on which they are a member of the Site Owners group.
