  • Hi, 

    if you want to see which is the associated Owner group for the site, you can append "_layouts/permsetup.aspx" to your site Url i.e. http://siteurl/_layouts/permsetup.aspx

    All the users of this group will be having Full Control over the site.

    Alternatively, you can user powershell to check the users with Full Control access.

  • Hiya,

    Not sure on what you mean by your answer, however here is a swing at answering it.
    First link contains an explanation on the matter, as well as a refence to rights matrix for the different roles.

    SharePoint Site Collection Administrator vs. Site Owner
    Link Dead. Google Search for above title will give relevant hits.

    Secondly gives a powershell script, which will return all users on a given site with Full control.

  • Site Owner is the user who has full control over the site who can perform all the task related to site like Site Permissions, Manage Lists etc. You can check the associated Site Owner group at

     http://siteurl/_layouts/permsetup.aspxwhere siteurl is your Site URL.

    Hope this will help.

  • Hey Maggy111,

    

    It’s hard to identify who the site owner is, if you’re like me SP was already deployed and I need to know who is responsible for what. There are two ways I would tackle this issue.

    1. Go to the site and select site action and then permissions, look for permissions levels groups of full control and design, manage hierarchy and check who is in the groups and email them to see if they are the site owner.

    2. What I do to easily found out who is site owner is add contact web part to the page and header it site contact so everyone in the business know who to contact if the page needs updating. Hope this helps Regards

  • Ok so this shows you the groups but does not show you who is in them not really that helpful really.  Make sure to take out everything in the URL out as this is a list.  Just use the base URL.  Not use full in any case.

  • Another, maybe simpler way, might be to click on the Site Actions drop-down arrow, then click on About This Site. It will list all the owners as well as who created the site.
