You can manage the overall resource consumption limit of a VMware Cloud Director user. You can add, edit, and remove the user's quotas on VMs, Tanzu Kubernetes clusters, CPU, memory, or storage.

Users can see the quotas relevant only to their user type. Users inherit quotas from the group they belong to. If a user inherits a resource quota from their group and has an explicit user-level quota defined for that resource, then the user-level quota takes priority over the group-level quota.

For information about creating or importing users, see Create a User in Your VMware Cloud Director Tenant Portal or Import Users in Your VMware Cloud Director Tenant Portal.

You can add or edit resource quotas for specific VMware Cloud Director users.


Verify that you have the necessary rights to add, edit, and delete resource quotas. By default, Organization administrators can change the quotas of users.


  1. In the top navigation bar, click Administration.
  2. In the left panel under Access Control, click Users.
  3. Select the name of a user and select the Quotas tab.
    Users do not have any quotas by default. All users that belong to a group inherit the group's quotas. If the user belongs to a group that has a quota on resources, the quota appears in the user's list of quotas as not editable.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Modify the quota for the selected user.
    You can add, edit, or remove quotas on the number of Tanzu Kubernetes clusters, all or running VMs managed by the user, consumed CPU, memory, and storage. Select Unlimited if you want the user to have unlimited resources of the selected type.
  6. Click Save.
