For "Collection", you'd need, at the vCenter level with propagation enabled:

  • Read Global : Health Storage View : Views

For "Registration", which is done one time when you first configure the adapter instance, you'd need:

  • Extensions : Register, Unregister, Update extensions.

Some people use one account with all the perms, some have two.. it's just customer preference.

If you find this or any other answer useful please mark the answer as correct or helpful.
