When setting up user access, you assign your users roles so that they can perform specific tasks with VMware Cloud DR.

Each role has a specific set of operations associated with it, so when a user is assigned a role, the user can perform all operations associated with that role.

VMware Cloud has two general categories of roles: organization and service. Organization roles provide capabilities for working with the VMware Cloud Services platform, such as adding users and creating API tokens. Service roles provide capabilities related directly to a VMware Cloud service.

The ability to create an API Token requires the following organization role:

  • Organization Owner
VMware Cloud DR also requires the following two VMware Cloud service roles:
  • VMware Cloud on AWS Administrator
  • VMware Cloud on AWS NSX Cloud Admin
