Deny vSphere GUI/Web access from users to vCenter, But allow them to authenticate

Hi,


We build a small program that you put the VM-ID and it opens a cosole to the specifiec VM.

I want to let users to authenicate with the vCenter with 'Console interaction' only permission ( for web console view ) but deny them access from vSphere client and Web client to the vCenter

at the moment users who have only Console interaction permission can login to the vCenter and only view the folders - i want to deny them this option.

I'm looking for a way to do it without changing vCenter firewall. if there is a way doing it without involving the firewall - something in the permissin level only


Thanks in advance Smiley Happy

Hi Yaris

and welcome to the VMware Communities!

Can you maybe change your custom program to use a service account for authentication that has proper vCenter permissions, but is not known to the users?
