Hi,
I need to document the minimum permissions required to allow developers to deploy Farm Scoped Solutions from Visual Studio to SharePoint for my current project.
Can someone provide the useful links to accomplish that.

Thanks,
Hemant

You need a farm admin.
 - you need to be able first to upload the wsp to the front-end server
- you need farm admin and local admin to run PowerShell or STSAdm to install the solution
- you need farm admin to deploy it

If your application does something with the database or touches other web applications then you will need permissions for content databases of these applications and maybe the config database.

You need to be the "Setup user administrator" to deploy farm scoped solutions.

The user needs to be a Farm Administrator of your Sharepoint Site

Open Central Administration -> Security -> Manage the farm administrators group -> add the user.

Also on your server machine the user needs to be a part of the group WSS_Admin_WPG.

Add the user also to the Site Collection Administrator group of the site.
