Access Denied when saving list as template

Hello,

I'm a site collection admin so I do not have this issue. However, when end users (whom are site owners) try to save their list as a template, they get the Access Denied page. I've found from my research, the end user does not have the correct permissions to the List template gallery which is at the root. The end users have read only permissions at the root. I've also found that to fix this issue, the end users will need Design permissions at minimum at the root or on the List template gallery. Is all the permissions to include in the Design permission level necessary for this to work? I do not want to give the end users all permissions in the Design group.

As this issue is realted to SharePoint, I would remove the tag of OOS and add a tag of SharePoint.
Thansk for your understanding.

It will not allow me to change the tag. I've tired removing it and adding "SharePoint" and clicking Save but it will not save.

Designer rights are required to accomplish saving a list/library as a template. You may be able to see if you can skirt this issue by performing the following as noted here: https://superuser.com/questions/687655/what-sharepoint-permission-governs-whether-you-can-make-list-a-template.

Saving objects as template is a bit legacy, you might want to look into modern methods.

Hi @trevorseward,

Thank you for the information. Is there any documentation of using alternative modern methods instead of saving a list template?
