Add granular site permission "Manage Access Requests"
Allow us to create a permission role that can be assigned to a SP team site group that allows users the ability to manage access requests with out having to grant "Manage Permissions" or "Manage Web Site" or simply granting full control.

In on-prem, the ability to manage access requests is limited to users in the sites 'Owner' group.. which is set up when you first configure a new site. This means 'improperly' configured sites may deny access to someone who has full control permissions.
'Manage Access Requests' should be its own role and by default should be granted to users with full control.

Actually, users who have the "Manage Web Site" permission are unable to access and use "Manage Access Requests." A better solution would be to break up "Manage Permissions" into two permissions, one creates permission levels on the Web site, and another that can change permission levels on the Web site and assign permissions to users and groups.
