You must have permissions in vRealize Automation and vRealize Operations Manager to configure workload placement and the placement policy.

In vRealize Operations Manager, you must create a user role for workload placement, and assign permissions to the role.

  • On the user account, assign the read-only permission to vSphere Hosts and Clusters, and vSphere Storage, in the object hierarchy.

  • To have the user role use API calls in workload placement, assign read and write permissions on APIs. Select Administration > Access Control > Permissions, and select REST APIs > All other Read, Write APIs.

vRealize Automation uses the vRealize Operations Manager role when you register the endpoint, and to request placement recommendations during provisioning on behalf of users who request catalog items.

For more information, see Access Control in the vRealize Operations Manager Information Center.
