vSphere Tagging privileges control the ability to create and delete tags and tag categories, and assign and remove tags on vCenter Server inventory objects.

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.
