I have deployed a Sitefinity 4.2 site for a customer. While I'm retaining most administrative responsibility, I need to grant them the ability to create additional users, but not to do other administrative tasks (change configuration, accidentally tinker with the backend, etc.) I set up a role with what I thought would give them basic permissions to do this, but when I log in as this role I can't see the Administrative section of the backend.
I read through some forum posts, and one about visibility of the Pages section of the backend mentioned that you had to go and change the permissions so that custom role could see that section. That got me thinking, so I went and looked under Administration > Backend Pages, and sure enough, there's no way this user would see that section as only Administrators can see that section.
So.... before I tinker with the Backend Pages, I'd like some advice. What is the best solution here? To add this role so it can see their way down to the User Management branch of the Administration section? Any other (better?) solutions anyone can think of?
