With vSphere Web Client, you can search the inventory for objects that match specified criteria. You can search the inventories of all vCenter Server systems connected to the same Platform Services Controller or to Platform Services Controllers.

You can only view and search for inventory objects that you have permission to view.

Note:

If your permissions change while you are logged in, the search service might not immediately recognize these changes. To ensure that your search is performed with up-to-date permissions, log out of all your open sessions and log in again before you perform the search.
