Step 3. Assign Permissions on Infrastructure Inventory Objects

To view and work with virtual infrastructure objects in Veeam ONE, the user must have appropriate permissions on these objects set in the VMware vSphere or vCloud Director inventory.

VMware vSphere Permissions

Connect to vCenter Server or standalone host with vSphere Client and assign permissions on objects to which the user must have access.

The following table shows minimal required privileges on VMware vSphere inventory objects.

VI Inventory Object

VMware vSphere Privilege

vCenter Server (root)
Data Center
Cluster
Host
Resource Pool/vApp
Datastore Cluster
Datastore

Read-only

Virtual Machine

  • Read-only
  • Virtual machine.Interaction.Answer question1
  • Virtual machine.Interaction.Console interaction1

1 Required to access VM console in Veeam ONE Monitor

Note:

If you assign permissions to container objects (such as hosts, resource pools or vApps), consider enabling propagation. In this case, all new child objects that might added to the container in future will become available to the user.

vCloud Director Permissions

Connect to vCloud Director and assign permissions on objects to which the user must have access.

The following table shows minimal required roles for vCloud Director inventory objects.

VI Inventory Object

vCloud Director Role

vCloud Director (root)

System Administrator

Organization

Console access only

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
