There is no default role to  create/alter/delete views in sql server.

modifying/creating view requires Alter permission on the schema. You need to create a new schema and provide access to that. Also create DDL triggers so that people cannot drop accidentally these.

1. Create a database role  let say. ROLE-1

2. grant permission to that role

3.  Add users who need to create view into new role "ROLE-1"
EXEC sp_addrolemember 'ROLE-1', 'USER';

How do you create a database role, like ROLE-1?  I was going to call it db_createviews - would that be acceptable?
Deepak ChauhanSQL Server DBACommented:
use < your database name>
CREATE ROLE [db_createviews] AUTHORIZATION [dbo];

or you can do it using GUI,.

1. connect sql server  > expand database in which you want to create role > expand security folder > expand role > right click on database role > create new role  
next steps are self explanatory

As long the name doesn't exist you can call it whatever you want.
