    How to remove an orphaned object from permissions

    KKvss Novice

      Hello Community,

       

      we deleted a Cluster and Host from the vCenter and didn´t remove some special permissions from that.

      Now, we see an orphaned object in the Administrator --> Roles section and can´t remove it!

       

       

      When I click on the objects there are no tabs to remove the permission - HTML5 is also not working.

       

      Maybe somebody knows how to remove it?

       

      Greetings

          Hey Team,

           

          i found a solution together with my colleague - POWERCLI!!!

           

          Get-VIPermission -Principal "User/Group name" | FL

           

          EntityId      : Datacenter-datacenter-XXXX

          Entity        : User/Group name

          Role          : Role Name

          Principal     : User/Group name

          Propagate     : True

          IsGroup       : True

              

          There you can see the EntityID / Entity and Principal for the group also the orphand one will show up.

           

          Get-VIPermission -Principal "User/Group name" | Remove-VIPermission

           

          Perform operation?

          Removing permission on entity 'Datacenter-datacenter-XXXX' for principal 'User/Group name' and role 'Role Name'

          So you can verify the EntityId and delete your orphaned one and ignore the rest.
