Jump to solution

In Virtual Center is there a way to add roles other that what is default with the configuration? I would like to create and add roles customizing permissions other than what is provided.

Click the Inventory button in the navigation bar, expand the inventory as needed, and click the appropriate object.

Click the Permissions tab.

Right-click the user/group + role pair that you want to change, and select Properties to display the Change Access Rule dialog box.

From the drop-down menu, select the appropriate role for the user or group.

To propagate the privileges to the children of the assigned inventory object, click the Propagate check box.

Click OK.

You can also copy/clone an existing role if you want a base to start from and only need to make minor modifications.
