solution adapter credential minimum permissions

What are the minimum permissions needed for an account used to connect to a target system for data collection? I found one KB article on how to create a specific role in vCenter, but what about systems like OneView, 3PAR, Horizon? Seems like they shouldn't need full admin, maybe just read-only? Running 7.5 if that matters. Thanks

Not a lot of documentation on this, but I found that it depends on the system. I created domain service accounts and added to the various systems, mostly as read only  (except vCenter server) and it seems to work fine. May take a little fine tuning depending on what vRops needs to do.
