Profile-driven storage privileges control operations related to storage profiles.

The table describes privileges required for viewing and updating storage profiles.

You can set this privilege at different levels in the hierarchy. For example, if you set a privilege at the folder level, you can propagate the privilege to one or more objects within the folder. The object listed in the Required On column must have the privilege set, either directly or inherited.
