You can control which users can view and manage license resources.

The following permission types are supported.

If you have global permission at the root folder, you can view and modify all licenses in the vCenter Server inventory. This permission includes other vCenter Server systems in a Linked Mode group.
If you have read-only permission on a host, the vCenter Server displays the first and last five characters of the license key assigned to the host, the features present in the license, and the expiration date for the license.

If you have neither of these permissions but you have the permission to add a host to vCenter Server, you can add a license to the inventory and assign a license to the host when you perform the add host operation.
