VMware vSphere Lifecycle Manager configuration privileges control the ability to configure the vSphere Lifecycle Manager service.

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.

Note: Assign privileges that authorize users to invoke VMware vSphere Lifecycle Manager APIs that accept URLs only to administrators or trusted users.
