A role is a predefined set of privileges. Privileges define the rights to perform actions and read properties. For example, the Virtual Infrastructure Administrator role allows a user to read, add, edit, and delete VIMs. This role also allows the user to perform all the life-cycle management operations on a Kubernetes cluster template and a Kubernetes cluster instance.

As a vCenter Server user, when you configure vCenter Server in the VMware Telco Cloud Automation appliance, you are assigned the System Administrator role to access VMware Telco Cloud Automation. Use this role to create roles and permissions for your users.

A System Administrator or a Role Administrator of VMware Telco Cloud Automation manages the roles and permissions of users.
