  • The user needs this permission level:

    Manage Permissions - Create and change permission levels on the Web site and assign permissions to users and groups.


    You can create a custom permission level and select the above option. Go to the top level of the site, site actions, site permissions and permission levels.

  • I set that - but how can i confirm that the use only can expand the site members group, and not give himself full control permission...?

  • You test it.

    Either use a dummy account or ask him to test it with you.

  • Sure we do but we are looking for the best practice, since i guess it's a common situation that you want someone to own a group and add members, and it has to be at the site level
    (not a doc library level) - but he needs a UI to access and edit the group members...
