A system administrator can use the vCloud Director Web Console to copy a role object within an organization.

Prerequisites

Only a system administrator can use the vCloud Director Web Console create or update role objects.

Procedure

  1. Click the Administration tab and click Roles in the left pane.

    The system displays a list of all roles and the organizations in which they exist.

  2. Right-click an entry in the list and select Copy to.
    Important:

    Regardless of the organization you select in the Copy Role dialog, the copy is always created in the source organization.

  3. Type a name and optional description for the copied role.
  4. Select the rights for the role and click OK.

    Expand a right category to see the individual rights it contains. All right categories are displayed by default. To limit the list of right categories displayed to those in which you have selected at least one right to add to the role, select Show only selected rights.

Results

A copy of the role is created within the organization.
