Inside Vcenter console and VCSA Management, I just find "administration" but I don't find the rest of your proposal.

For VCSA Management :
and the login is : root
Does your administrator@<domain_name> has full priviligies ?
Are you able to login as email@example.com ?
The profile for this account is "administrator"; then "full privilèges"
"Are you able to login as firstname.lastname@example.org ?"
