If our users navigate to Manager --> Views they can see all the views, but they do not have permissions to edit or add new. What capability is required for this?

Its not so much a capability but a permission on the app. If you go to Manager » Apps » » Permissions you can give additional roles write capability which will allow them to be able to share objects with other users. If global write perms on the app are to broad your comfort you can make the write perms more granular by creating a $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps//metadata/local.meta file and defining the granular write capability. You can use the default.meta file in that same directory as an example of the format. You would only need to define the modified capabilities.
