what are the Permissions needed for a user to be able to assign/manage users in a permission set? And where those permissions are? at user level or profile level? Not able to find Assign Permission set

    You might want to look at delegated administration if you want to control which permission sets a user can assign. help.salesforce.com/… – gorav Aug 24 '16 at 1:34

There are two permissions to assign/manage permissions set. There permissions are found under Administrative Permissions section of a Profile.

    Seems, profiles with Salesforce Platform user licenses does not have these permission. You can create a Permission Set to hold these permission and can assign this permission set to User. I have taken the screenshot from System Administrator Profile whih has Salesforce user license. – Devendra Aug 23 '16 at 7:48
  • I've tried to do the same. But the problem is that you can assign a Persmission set with Salesforce user license to a profile with the same user license not to a profile with Salesforce Platform user license. And in the Permission Set for Salesforce Platform user license these two permissions are still unavailable same as its profile. – user59759 Aug 23 '16 at 7:58
  • @user59759 Yes, you are right. The "Salesforce Platform" user license doesn't allow the permission: Manage Profiles and Permission Sets. A profile should be of "Salesforce" license to work on the Permission Sets. – Devendra Aug 24 '16 at 10:28
