To get View object properties, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.

To set View object properties, ALTER permission on the view or ALTER VIEW permission on the database.

To create a view, users must CREATE VIEW permission on the database and ALTER permission on the specified schema.

To drop a view, users must have CONTROL permission on the view and ALTER permission on the specified schema.

To grant, deny, or revoke permissions on the view to other users, users must have CONTROL permission on the view.
