Monitoring vCenter Aplliance 6.5 API User Pemissions

I want to monitor my 6.5 Appliance with Health REST API. I want use following APIs:

GET https://{server}/rest/appliance/health/applmgmt

GET https://{server}/rest/appliance/health/database-storage

GET https://{server}/rest/appliance/health/load

GET https://{server}/rest/appliance/health/mem

GET https://{server}/rest/appliance/health/software-packages

GET https://{server}/rest/appliance/health/storage

GET https://{server}/rest/appliance/health/swap

GET https://{server}/rest/appliance/health/system

I tested it at my LAB and it works only with vsphere.local user and User permission:

vCenter Permission: Global.Health

Groups:  SystemConfiguration.BashShellAdministrator 

But Group SystemConfiguration.BashShellAdministrator has to much privileges. Which permission should monitoring user have?
