About VMware roles

The Management Server relies on roles to control user access. Each user can have one or more roles. The roles granted to a user determine the set of actions that the user can perform. The Management Server includes a set of built-in roles that control access to dashboards and reports included with the Management Server. The following roles are included with Foglight® for VMware to control access to the dashboards and reports:

VMware Administrator: This role provides full access to all product components, views and reports.
VMware Automation User: Users with this role can access the VMware Explorer Administration tab. This tab provides quick access to common administrative tasks that include server shutdown, virtual machine creation, resource allocation, and others.
IMPORTANT: Executing VMware administration tasks, such as rebooting an ESX® host or a VM, require specific VMware® permissions.
VMware Operator User: This role restricts the user to the VMware Environment and VMware Explorer dashboards only, except the Administration tab, and NetFlow Setting and Cisco Setting dialog boxes. Attempts to navigate to these elements result in the following message: Sorry. The view is not authorized.
VMware QuickView User: This role restricts the user to the VMware Environment dashboard only. Attempts to navigate to the VMware Explorer result in the following message: You are not authorized to access view “VMware Explorer”.
VMware Report User: This role grants access to the Foglight for VMware reports only. None of the VMware views are accessible if this is the user’s only role. To work with reports, the user additionally requires the Reports Manager role.

For more information about roles, users, and security, see the Administration and Configuration Help.
