Known Issues

  • Perform new Privilege Check for APIs that are being used by the vCloud Director Plugin

    vRealize Operation Manager 7.5 has introduced a new Privilege Check for APIs that are being used by the vCloud Director Plugin. The vCloud Director plugin uses a special user that belongs to the "VCD Tenant Admin" group. Add the privilege "administration.accesscontrol.viewpage" to the "VCD Tenant Admin" group while creating it in the vRealize Operation Manager from Tenant App.

    Workaround : The users upgrading from older versions of the Tenant App have to perform certain manual operations from the UI and API.
    UI

    1. Go to Administration -> Access -> Access Control -> Roles
    2. Select the "VCD Tenant Admin" role.
    3. Edit Permission
    4. Select Administration-> Access-> Access Control-> View Access Control Page
    5. Click Update

    API
    POST /api/auth/roles/VCD Tenant Admin/privileges
    JSON :
    {
    "privilege-key" : [ "View Access Control Page" ]
    }

    Note: No workaround required for users who have newly deployed the Tenant App.

  • Access Denied for vCloud Director Operations Manager Plugin, as the new permission is not added for the existing plugin user in vRealize Operations Manager

    Due to the new permission 'administration.accesscontrol.viewpage' that is added for the vCloud Director Tenant Admin Role in vRealize Operations Manager, the message 'Access Denied' is displayed in Operations Manager Plugin in vCloud Director.

    Workaround:

    1. Login to Tenant App as admin user.
    2. Go to Administration -> Access Management -> Access Management.
    3. Disable the Organizations for which the Plugin has been enabled, and then Enable again.
