How can I add Edit Custom Atributes to a Role

Jump to solution

I have a custom role for Junior Admins that restricts them from causing too much trouble on Vsphere 6.7.  But I need them to be able to edit an existing Custom Attribute tag so that we can determine the startup and shutdown priorities on VM's. I have looked all through the roles, but I can't find anything about just Custom Attributes.  Do I have to allow them to edit all tags just to give them access to this?

This is how it looks using the HTML5 client, you can create a new role or edit an already existing one. The permissions you're looking for are under Global.

and this is how it looks in the vSphere Web Client.

I had already found that article, but what it doesn't tell me is how to add that to a Role.  I am not sure how I add that privilege to my role.  I am fairly new to VMware, so please excuse my ignorance of how to apply this.
