Permissions required for alert creation and dashboard sharing?

Hello!

We are working in an environment with extremely locked down permissions that are not under any of the standard user/admin accounts. The requirement for the environment is that all capabilities need to be completely granular and manually added.

We're looking for only the specific capabilities required to be added to our accounts that will allow us to:

  1. Share dashboards with read/write allowances to other users.
  2. Create alerts (specifically ones which will trigger on conditions and email out)

Any help is very appreciated! Thank you!

* Lets a user schedule saved searches, create and update alerts, and review triggered alert information.

sharing dashboards:

"Users with read access can only save objects for themselves, and require write access to be able to share objects with other users."

Great! Thank you for your help on this!

It sounds like the dashboard sharing permissions could be pretty far ranging in this case correct? We would need write permissions to the entire search app to do so?
