Minimum priveleges needed for a service account to take VM snapshots

Hello,

We have a request for a service account to be able to take and manage snapshots on a particular cluster.

We want to create a new role for this.

Looking at the vmware documentation, it looks like the service account will need the following permissions:

datastore.allocate space  - on the datastore

snapshot management  - on the vm or folder

Are there any other permissions needed in order to accomplish this ?

Thanks!

Best Regards,

Tom
