I've found this link: Changes to Extended Events Permission Requirements in SQL Server 2012 that mentions the need of CONTROL SERVER permission for using extended events on SQL Server 2008. I want to grant access to extended events to developers, is not any other way to do it? We are running on SQL Server 2008R2.
