Because VMware performs host administration and other tasks for you, a Cloud Administrator requires fewer privileges than an Administrator user on an on-premises data center.

The CloudAdmin role has a set of privileges that is dynamically generated for your SDDC. They include most of the available privileges in all categories. To view the privileges granted to the CloudAdmin role, log into the SDDC vSphere Client, click Administration > Roles, select CloudAdmin from the list of roles, then click PRIVILEGES.

For more information on the permissions granted by each privilege , see the vSphere Defined Privileges reference.
