Step 3. Assign Permissions on Infrastructure Inventory Objects

In this article

    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 Client

    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.
