It's a little different assigning the user permissions, as it's in a different location from the tab where you create users and roles.

If you got back the default host view and click on the Actions button on the top of the view and go to

Actions -> Permissions

You will have to use the command line to know which all objects this role is associated to -

vim-cmd vimsvc/auth/role_permissions role_name --> Replace the role_name with the name of the role you are looking for.

In the output, field 'entity' will be the objects the role is associated with.
